    On my iPhone 5 with 6.0:
    If I have something typed in the apple notes app in a particular note that is very long, I can get spotlight to search the phone for a certain keyword that I remember typing about. It will then lead me to that note. But my question is how to get more specific from there? If my note is a mile long it's very difficult to pinpoint in in a timely fashion.
    Am I missing a step on how to get to my actual word I'm searching for? Like for instance using windows, control+f brings up a screen word finder.
    Anything like that I'm just not seeing?

    Thanks
    Brad

    I understand what you're saying but you can't do that. It's one of the limitations on iOS.

    Since I have iTunes Match I started using Spotlight to search for music quickly. Also to find emails instead of opening the Mail app.
