Search.

Post by bigcebo » Mon May 01, 2017 8:28 am

I noticed if I forget an apostrophe it will not find a match like if I type "What's Luv?" as "whats Luv?" it will not be found. is there a way around this?

Loose the quotes in the no apostrophe example, as the quotes tell it to find "only" exactly what you type.
I think it's one of those things where you can't really simplify it. Unfortunately, it's "no accidents/paying attention/remembering to do something" either way. :-?

The quotes are for the sake of the post. Im not typing quotes in the search field in the software.

Which version of MediaMonkey and did you enable to search whole words only (Tools > Options > Search)? I have it disabled on 4.1.16 beta and whats finds both whats and what's.

Ok, gotcha on the quotes. I do that all the time too. It threw me a bit this time. Since we're talking
about searching, it naturally takes on a different meaning :wink: .

To issue, when I have the same settings as Lowlander, I get the same results (I prefer "whole words only", though).
