Hashtag search in Revisions

Post by friedemann_bach » Thu Jun 23, 2016 12:55 pm

Dear Developers,

we are frequently working with revisions, using mostly comments, which works great and helps a lot. Now, to identify specific topics within comments, we tried introducing hashtags (#) in comments. It seems that they are not indexed, though, so we will not find them if we search for e.g. "#fruits" in the Resources View. I tried a variety of characters to replace the hashtag, yet without success. Is there an alternative method, or do you see a chance to support this in the future?

Best regards

Hi,

I reproduced the problem on my side and added an issue to investigate it further. Usually the indexer focuses on words and probably it gathers words and ignores special characters. We'll try to see if we can improve on this behavior.

Regards,
