Greek Intonation in Search

Can we add interchangeability to those “groups” as well?
This will apply to things like selecting accounts in invoices and everything else ofcourse.
So even if someone uses for example english “I” he will get results of all greek “Ι” like Ι , 'Ι , Ϊ, ι, ί, ϊ, and finally ΐ
And ofcourse the same if he uses the greek “ι” he would get the english “i” ofcourse

Ω Unicode number: U+03A9 capital without intonation
Ώ Unicode number: U+038F capital intonated
ω Unicode number: U+03C9 small without intonation
ώ Unicode number: U+03CE small intonated

and a consonant

Σ Unicode number: U+03A3 Capital
σ Unicode number: U+03C3 Small
ς Unicode number: U+03C2 <- This one is the same as the others, but one difference. It is used only as the last letter of the word if the last letter is “σ” and it is NOT capital. “ς” is used only in exchange of “σ”. Κορμοσ , is written as Κορμος . So if this , restriction, is not possible, being interchangable in search will work like a gem anyway

Thank you for your hard work and patience and support!

Thanks for the effort. I really appreciate it. The main issue I need to tackle is performance. It’s not viable for Manager to apply these rules in real-time when doing full-text search. And there are many places in Manager where full-text search is happening (e.g. every autocomplete box).

So I will need to build some indexing mechanism which will take into account these rules ahead of time. This is not trivial and it could take some months before I’d start working on it.

Sorry for giving out impression this could be easily solved, I didn’t realize how deep this issue really is. You can see most programs don’t go this far.

Anything for the program I love and the team behind it.

I just thought that the post I’ve made in the other topic went unoticed. I am pretty sure that when this happens, it will be up to the standards you got us used to.
