DTTG Searches are Blank

I have a large database which I have Synced to DTTG on my iPhone to a DT3 database stored in iCloud.

I can browse through many items on DTTG and it works well to view bookmarks or PDF files etc.

However, any search that I enter - even a search for obvious keywords in the title of many items - comes up blank.

Why might this be?

What search terms are you using and what do you expect to find?

Also, If you can’t find items in a search in DEVONthink To Go, select Help > Appendix > URL Commands > Performing Service Tasks and click the Execute link under reindex .

I am trying major words in the title and/or body of many items in the database.

Bookmarks would only match their names.
PDFs would only match their names or contents if there is a text layer.

Did you follow my suggestion?

Yes I followed your suggestion

I am searching by major words in the titles of many items

Every search I do has zero hits

Is there any progress indicator showing indexing is still going on?

Does this perist after quitting and relaunching DEVONthink?

After rebooting the device?

It flashes “Preparing Reindexing” briefly - then I see no other action

Quitting/Relaunching/Rebooting have no effect

searches all blank

If this is a large database, reindexing would not be instantaneous. It would prepare, then show a brief message: Indexing Documents. Then it would show progress beneath the database or file listing.

It is indeed a large database.

I see the Preparing Indexing message flash briefly. It never says indexing and never shows a progress indicator regarding indexing.

I would be patient and watch it to see if the process initiates. If it doesn’t within several minutes, un DEVONthink To Go 2, select Help > Contact Us to start a Support Ticket. Thanks!

ok will do - thanks
