I am wondering what could be causing the following: I’m doing a global search through a database with a string such as “cheminée tags:s:Archive* scope:workDB” (cheminée means “chimney” in French).
I get five results. I click on each of them with the Search pane open to the right. The string “cheminée” is automatically filled in search field at the top of the pane, but as I advance through each document I don’t see any occurrences appearing below.
If I click on each document, then click in the search field, then press Enter, there are no occurrences either.
So I figure there must be a problem with the accented “é” and enter “cheminee” in the search bar (still in the Search pane on the right). Now if I click on each of the five documents in the search results, click to the right and press Enter, I get some occurrences for the first two documents only, which highlight the words cheminée and cheminées. However if I enter “cheminee” in the search bar — without the accented é — no occurrences are displayed at all, in any document.
If I open all five documents in an external viewer such as PDF Expert, I can find “cheminée” in only the first two documents, like in DT.
So why is this erratic behavior with accented characters, and why is DT coming up with documents in search results where even its own code can’t find the string itself?
BTW, this second issue (with “ghost” results) has happened to me several times already, even with searches not remotely involving accented characters.
Thank you for your help.
