I have some documents that have words that sometimes can be "split" by a hyphen between two lines. For example, see the term below highlighted:

Noticed that the word "discriminação" is splitted between two lines by a hyphen.

I noticed that in cases like this the index of FileLocator Pro recognizes the word as "discrimina- ção" and not "discriminação" :

The picture above was taken Version 2021 - Build 3264 (BETA) of FileLocator Pro.
This happened in the Version 8.5 - Build 2951 too.

So, for example, if I search for the term "discriminação" it won't find the words "discriminação" that were hyphenated. As this will happen with every other word in the same situation I worry that it can compromise some searches.

Is there any way I can bypass this issue? something I can do in the search terms or in the index action of the program?

Any help would be much appreciated!

At present there's no way to recombine words that are shown as split in the text. I'll add your request to our Issue Tracker.
