It's a usability issue that doesn't limit the functionality of a core package.

Hey there, have you try on just uninstalling unity-scope-tomboy ?

I did it, and now seems different behave, guess no multiple so far, could you confirm it please.

what I did just was:

$ sudo apt-get remove unity-scope-tomboy

Note: Once I uninstall unity-scope-tomboy, I did not reboot yet.

Checked #3 comment.

$ sudo apt-get remove unity-scope-tomboy.
Note: Once I uninstall unity-scope-tomboy, I did not reboot yet.

The retrieval result in file name was displayed in "Dash".
However, the retrieval result in note name is not displayed.
