Can’t search for words ending in ’

Can’t search for words ending in ’

Postby Qov » Sat Jul 20, 2019 12:19 pm

My card set has a number of words of the form jo’ mu’ tI’ : two letters and an apostrophe. The search function doesn’t find these words. I can search for jo (which retrieves jo and all the words containing jo), but as soon as I add the ‘ it shows zero results, even though I’ve verified that the word is there. Bug, or feature I don’t understand?

Hi. There is no special logic for this character. My guess is the problem is due to straight apostrophe vs curved ones. Long-press the apostrophe on the keyboard to bring up alternate versions. Hopefully the default alternate option will work, so you can just let up when you see the popup menu.

If this doesn't solve your problem, let me know.
