Search not finding document correctly with incomplete words

Bug report

Sometimes documents do not appear when I enter a part of the searched word only.


  • Platform: macOS
  • Platform version: Ventura 13.2 M1 Pro
  • App Version: 5.5.3

How to reproduce

Have a document named `Jupyter``

Then search for these words:

  • jup → finds the document
  • jupy → document NOT found
  • jupyt → document found again

Compare to the attached images:

Hi Philipp,

Thanks for the question.
Inkdrop uses SQLite FTS5 with the porter tokenizer, which can remove the commoner morphological and inflexional endings from words in English.
That would work unexpectedly in such cases.

Thanks for the fast answer, and sorry for not searching good enough in the existing tickets.
