I'm passing along an issue from one of our archivists regarding the typeahead search feature. It doesn't seem to behave as expected. I'm not sure if this is a failure of the indexer, or an issue with the length of the strings and how the typeahead feature works with multiple search terms, or a combination. In the example below, the archivist is searching for a specific collection entitled "Miscellaneous Photograph Collection". I would expect the typeahead to display that result fairly early as the user enters the terms, probably by the time they've reached "miscellaneous pho".
Begin searching. The typeahead works...
... for the first 10 characters, until we type the 11th character and then it disappears.
Continuing, we expect it to turn up the desired description, at least somewhere in the top 3, but it doesn't (is it completely ignoring "miscellaneous" at this point?).
Continuing with "photograph", then "coll", still no consideration for "miscellaneous".
Yet, searching for "miscellane photograph", with only the first 10 letters in "miscellaneous", brings up a match in the typeahead (3rd from the top).
Is this a known issue, or a configuration change that can be made to fix it?
