I have quite a lot of documents that use American spelling. As an example, I have a document called: “Windows Modernization”.
If I search for “Windows Modernisation” (UK Spelling), that document doesn’t get found. So I added an alias to the doc with the UK spelling.
Now, if I search for this, then it shows up:
but if I just search for:
… then it doesn’t. Is that the expected behaviour? Usually I’ll not remember whether this was UK or US spelling, so by default I’ll want it to search for aliases and main titles. I don’t want to have to type a complex search but would like it to be the default.
On a side-note; is there anything else I can do here to make searching better? Some apps have a “sounds like” mode. I know that there is fuzzy search here, and perhaps that works for some cases.
On a side note; my experience with Fuzzy Search is really weird. Here’s what happens when I use it:
It looks like it doesn’t take effect for live searching. The document disappears as soon as I type the ‘s’. However, at the end of this screencast you’ll see I hit return, and then it does seem to take effect and the document appears again. Is that expected?
