Text appearing within a box


Every time I type “symbo” it appears inside a box. What is that feature and how do I control it?


Hi codeaporia,

Thank you for the question.

That’s a search highlight.
You searched notes with keyword ‘symbo’.
It appears when you opened a note from the search result, or when you searched a keyword in a note.
You can clear them by doing so:

  1. Toggle find pane by pressing Cmd-F on macOS or Ctrl-F on Windows and Linux, or selecting menu from Edit -> Find.
  2. Press Esc to cancel search
