Search doesn't support partial word match

For example, I have a word “diagonalization”. I want the search effective after I input “diagonal”. In this way, it will be very convenient for me to search the notes as sometimes we might not come up with the exact word we used.

You can get this by typing “diag*”. But that only completes to the end of the word

Great. Thanks, I didn’t know it supports regular expression.

It’s not quite regex. For reference, searching is explained here.

This does still seem to be the case - on purpose or a feature not yet fully implemented ? It seems unusual, even counterintuitive when yo cannot find anyone and you. Few users will remember using the wildcard, in particular when it doesn't work anywhere.
