Copied all my local notes to Apple's iCloud notes. It's been a few days and they haven't indexed yet. I found if I edit a notes file then it gets indexed. I don't want to edit all my notes apps as they maintain the date of last usage. How can I force an index of all the Apple notes?
For what it's worth, I copied all my notes from iCloud to "on my Mac" by selecting all the iCloud notes, holding down the option key and dragging them all to "On my Mac". Immediately they were all indexed and searchable. hmm. Oh my, so are the iCloud notes now searchable too. So that copy function must have triggered an indexing command.
