Ignore accents

Post by SafetyCar » Sat Jul 25, 2009 7:00 pm

Hi, yesterday I found and it has been "love at first sight"

I wanted to suggest an option to ignore if the filename has accents. For example:

I search for: "beyonce" but I want that in the result can appear results with "Beyoncé"
or
I search for: "Hakkinen" but I want that in the result can appear results with "Häkkinen"


I know this could be search through Reg-ex searching "beyonc[ée]" but it's a little uncomfortable, and some times I forget which words have accents...


This feature would be optional in the "Search" menu as others like Match Case or Path


Anyway, thanks for the software :P

I left this out in the last version due to performance reasons.

I have added the option to ignore accents to my "Things to do" list..

Enabling this option would slightly decrease search performance.

Thanks for the suggestion.
