Ignore accent and case while searching

Anki’s search functionality does not currently support ignoring accents or formatting outside the sort field due to technical reasons, but it is something I’d like to address in the future.

I found this old topic and wonder if the time for this has come :slight_smile: :grimacing:

The ignore accent addon doesnt work very well and nc: is incompatible with w: on top of having to type it on every search

Would it be possible to add a toggle somewhere? pretty please?:slight_smile:

A preferences option to ignore accents should become available in the next version.

It works with simple unqualified searches ("مرحبا") and word boundary searches ("w:مرحبا") for now.


Wow, thank you so much

This is pure gold!!
