Yes, this is a big failing in a wide variety of otherwise perfectly competent apps. It’s one of the very strong points of both MacJournal and Notebooks – both of them immediately highlight hits in individual entries as part of a cross-document search (MacJ even does that in PDFs, and it’s on Alfons’s roadmap). There are other apps that do this, of course (Keep It springs to mind), but for journalling purposes, you can’t really go wrong with MacJ. The timeline feature is an unexpected bonus.

Since MacJournal came up in this thread I will mention that I recently posted about why I have gone back to MJ as my primary digital notebook:

MJ is now at b3.

So far, Notebooks 2 looks like a dressed up version of more-of-the-same—not very exciting.  MJ is also pretty much unchanged—except the good news that Schimpf is now interested in it again.  It’s a much better journal than Notebooks can be.

I’m getting curious about MJ. The beta is rather buggy, but hey, it’s a beta. Someone (perhaps in this thread, I can’t recall) pointed out something I’d never noticed: when you search in Day One, it does NOT highlight results! That’s crazy! Why would I even bother?

I’m thinking about using MJ for my digital journaling needs, especially since it seems a LOT more flexible at its core.

That was me. Yes, it’s VERY annoying, especially since I often go back and search calorie counts for my food journal.

Why bother though? Because Day One can do so much else - everything from pulling in social media posts, to taking note of location data and weather for journal entries, to smoothly incorporating photos, audio and video. It has Safari and Chrome browser extensions. And templates. And it now does dictation as well as transcriptions.

So I’ve been holding on, with the understanding that the app is being regularly updated, and hopefully they’ll get their search up to snuff (the same way they overhauled their editor last year so you no longer had to click an EDIT button after selecting an entry).
