Fuzzy search results

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
The problem is that minor spelling errors in the search box won’t yield the results you’re looking for. Right now, if I were searching for objects containing “Macroeconomics” and misspelled the search, it would return no results:

Describe the solution you’d like
Implement a fuzzy search/approximate string matching algorithm, so that the previous search with a spelling mistake would produce the correct results:

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Alternative to implementing a full fuzzy search algorithm, a dictionary check could be run to produce a spelling correction:

Additional context
I think there is already a somewhat basic word correction algorithm in the desktop version, as typing a full world with only a minor spelling mistake will still yield the correct result, however this only occurs if the mis-spelled word has the same length as the correct spelling of the word.

Search really needs huge improvements.

  • Full text search
  • Highlighting searched items
  • Even Cmd + K spotlight like search bar
