Bug Find -> Match Whole Word -> a

Ďîďóë˙đíűĺ ďî ńęŕ÷čâŕíčţ - Ŕóäčî ÂĘîíňŕęňĺ.đó - ńęŕ÷ŕňü ěóçűęó čç  Ęîíňŕęňĺ.đó

He can not find the correct letter!

So you're saying that your search, using ww:a, did not find the '  ' in Ďîďóë˙đíűĺ ďî ńęŕ÷čâŕíčţ - Ŕóäčî ÂĘîíňŕęňĺ.đó - ńęŕ÷ŕňü ěóçűęó čç  Ęîíňŕęňĺ.đó?

It does on my end.
Or should it not find Â, or something else ?

Do you have Match Diacritics (Ctrl+M) enabled?
If so, you would have to search for  rather then A.

CTRL + M enable still wrong
CTRL + M disable still wrong

post1# But I clearly wrote that I am looking for "a"
LATIN SMALL LETTER A
I am not looking for anything else! "Â"
LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH CIRCUMFLEX


In another search tool, it works properly, Everything wrong search

He can not find the correct letter!
And neither can I, as there is no "a" in "Ďîďóë˙đíűĺ ďî ńęŕ÷čâŕíčţ - Ŕóäčî ÂĘîíňŕęňĺ.đó - ńęŕ÷ŕňü ěóçűęó čç  Ęîíňŕęňĺ.đó" and certainly not a whole word "a" !!

Match Diacritics and Match Case can influence the match-behaviour

Then why did you put  in bold??
(your question is not very clear; at least not for @therube and myself. Maybe try re-wording it with more context?)

Do you have Match Case (Ctrl+I) enabled?
Otherwise, the case of the 'A' is immaterial.

(Let me see if that is an A?
Yes, it is.)

This is not a normal letter a or A

I'm only find for the normal letter a, I'm not find for another encoding, so it's completely wrong, but at least in the Everything search tool. All clear?


Edit: Of course, the case of an erroneous mess is so large that it makes no sense to write a whole list of incorrect searching for normal letters. :P

No.

On my end "a" is "a" & I gather that your a is different, but I don't know how to "get" your a?

No.

How can we reproduce your test setup?
What result did you get? What result did you expect?

Just Everything takes a lot of different encodings for the normal letter "a". He will find the letter "a" and dozens of other letters that should not match the letter "a".
I want to find only "a" - I do not want other find coding, which is not a normal letter "a" (small)



Â(unicode) = a(normal letter)
No! It is not the same! This is a completely different letter

Maybe:

Code: Select all

case:a  !diacritics:Â
?


Maybe you could even map out a whole range of unicode characters (using regex:)?


nodiacritcs: is (can be ?) different from !diacritics:.

Code: Select all

..__ A b a n d o n w a r e R i n g __...url
case: ww:a !diacritics:Â
only highlights the lowercase a

case: ww:a nodiacritics:Â
highlights all the a's

(i'm not sure this last part is correct at all)

By default, Everything will ignore diacritics.
In other words, Everything will treat a and  as the same character.

Please try searching for:
diacritics:ww:a

diacritics: will enable diacritic matching.

nodiacritcs: is (can be ?) different from !diacritics:.
nodiacritics: means ignore diacritics (a is the same as Â)
!diacritics:a means NOT a (with matching diacritics)
