Is this intended behavior? (I hope it is!)

resolved

#1

Here’s what I mean:

Basically I wasn’t expecting that when you click on a tag named #link154, any other tag that contains “link154” as an initial segment is also contained in the search. Now, I’m definitely not complaining. I’d regard this to be a feature rather than a bug, because (among other things) it would allow me to use tags to better simulate linking since it allows me to disintinguish source and target.

I just want a confirmation from Dynalist as to whether this is intended behavior and will be kept rather than removed at some future point. Thank you!


#2

It’s complicated…

Basically, this is intended if you don’t put the space at the end. If there’s a space at the end, only full words will match.

The case you showed in the screenshot is an exception, since _ is not considered a word delimiter since it’s part of the Markdown formatting… Try removing the _ after link and you’ll find it not working any more, unless you remove the space at the end of the search query.

I hope that answers you question!
