Is there an advanced search feature?


Is there some kind of "advanced search" feature? I mean, I need to search all notes I created while using Obsidian, for that text excerpts which are used to link Obsidian notes (because I want to replace that for something which works, using that "Note Link System" plugin).

For example, with Obsidian I used [[text]] to do the internal linking. I just would like to search for that little part, the[[.

But at Joplin, if I try to search both via CTRL+P and the search field, nothing is found. But if I access directly the notes where I know that that is there, I am able to see that part and edit it.

So, is there any way to search for that? And, why does Joplin search engine don't find that?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @ewsg,

Likewise, I can't find a way to search for [[. However, I can find ]] from the search box by entering /]]

Give it a try, it may serve as a workaround for you to find instances of [[text]]
