implied diacritics in search - perhaps as option

Emil Kucera 4 years ago updated 4 years ago 2

Hello, I would fine most helpful if search for a word with diacritics would also find the same word without diacritics, and vice versa, since often it is faster to write a note without.

So that, say, "pricinlive" would also find "přičinlivě" and "přičinlivé" and a search for "příčin" would offer also "pricin" - which I may have written before the diacritics were easy to put in.

This would best be as a selectable option, either global or per search.

Hello Emil, thanks for your suggestion!

Actually this is already filed as a bug here: http://roadmap.cintanotes.com/topics/732-searching-for-accented-characters-produces-wrong-results/


Please confirm that this is the same issue

Hi, thanks for the quick response.

It is not the same issue, at least not exactly. That "bug" was fixed as far as I can see on my system. However, I would like to see an option that would treat accented and unaccented characters as identical during a search, rather than having to do two or more searches. Something to turn on or off as required - a perfect place for it would be together with the other options in the drop list arrow of the search line. Is it a difficult thing to implement?

Regards Emil
