What issue do you have?

I made import of Evernote enex file as MarkDown...
Previously under Evernote I often used its feature to insert checkbox anywhere in a text line. I often inserted several checkboxes in same line.

I'm agree I may fix my notes like MarkDown support checkbox but lot of my notes hadn't checkbox at start line, only inside text (see screenshot).
I don't know how to search these bad notes.

How to make search with raw content like "- [ ]" or "- [X]" to find them ?


Use the basic search like described in the documentation.

/"- [ ]"
/"- [X]"

My bad, I was blind (while seeing FAQ page). Thank you very much, @JackGruber
