In Logos 7, Notes were considered Documents. To find something in my Notes:

Search ==> Basic ==> Your Documents ==> type the text string to find

Now that Logos 8 redefines Notes as Notebooks, which are not Documents, this no longer works. This is causing me serious heartburn.

Are there new steps to find text in Notebooks?

Yes - you use the Search box at the top of the Notes Tool

And there are also plans to add this to the Documents area of an Everything search as per https://www.logos.com/faq/notes

Thanks, Graham. 

There is a caveat, though. The Note I was seeking was anchored to 1 Peter. To see it, I had to remove the Notebook filter.

Until the filter for Isaiah was removed, the seven results were only in Isaiah.

After removing the filter, all notes were searched. This behavior can be valuable, and will be enhanced by an Everything search that will not require resetting the Notebook filter after the search.

(Graham, while I appreciate your speedy responses, I worry that you don't get any sleep.)  Smile

Yes - although I wasn't aware of that!

The "search string" is added to the list of filters as a "Find" filter as your screenshot shows - so it would only search within notes that had been selected either by a notebook filter or another filter.

Agreed.

To get round this within the Notes Tool you could open another - non-filtered - instance of the Notes Tool and run the search there.

Aha! That explains how you always answer posts before the rest of us are awake.
