In, unable to search songs by word in All songs Show nil finding, the songs is here

Just found out can search songs in small letter only but not in capital letter!

Still not fix in 2.0.5

You are right! Capital lettres don't work - I had only tested it with small ones. Good find - this needs to be fixed.

Edit: Worked with latest public release

@TMavica: Yes, just wanted to say that this bug is new since newest Early Release. I added tag with SFOS version to your bug report.

Confirmed for capital letters. I just never thought one would use them for searching. ;)

This issue is now fixed and will be available in the upcoming releases. Please note that lower case search is case insensitive search. When you search with CAPS, it is a case sensitive search.

Works for me quite well and fast. Maybe try to reindex media database via Sailfish utilities.

You try search with capital letter

TMavica ( 2016-10-06 17:37:19 +0200 )edit

Good hint. It doesn't workvwith capital letters, but also find capitalized hits through non capital search. Seems to be a bug for me.

The song search works for me. However, my song titles are encodes in western script. I have a few song titles that contain unusual characters from the Turkish alphabet. Sailfish doesn't find them (and didn't find them before 2.0.4). Are your song titles English or do you also use non-English characters?

They are in English title I can see all songs there, just cant use search function, I need scroll to find
