Search bug when using Chinese keywords

Interesting. So you type chinese in the search box, and it doesn’t properly filter the notes that have that text?

exactly. btw, the tradition chinese doesnt show up in the TAG dropbox as well, but english no problem. ><

Can you explain what you mean by the “tag dropbox”? Perhaps post a screenshot of that?

Hi,

Same here.
It seems it need a stop word (for example, a space char) before or after the search term to make it work.

Test 1

  • Search term: 中文
  • In the note: 測試中文你好
  • Result: Search result not found

    ![35 PM|690x345](upload://j9O5AKPLoI4crO25s1aP4aipW4y.jpg)

Test 2

  • Search term: 中文
  • In the note: 測試 中文你好 (a space before the term)
  • Result: Found

Test 3 - The tags dropdown list.

Work for me.

p.s. I can only attach one image in one post (Discourse policy). So I comment them out and leave only one image.

I think this actually makes sense in the context of how our search is working. It matches the beginning of words. In this case, you are trying to match the middle of a piece of text, which doesn’t work at this point.

We will investigate whether it is feasible to do this. It will depend a bit on our search technology.

Thank you Drew.

Yes, in CJK languages, words are not separated.

OK, I see now we didn’t do a good job of this. We will look into improving it.
