Thanks for this @ccstone
Your test macro works on my system as well. Interestingly typing
Frederic doesn't call up
Frédéric in your list - as I suppose should be expected.
My problematic Prompt With List macro lists from a file rather than a variable, so I put your example words into a text file and revised your test macro to read that file—which it did.
Then I amended your macro to read my own text file (which contains the famous
Frédéric). As with my own macro, it failed when I typed
Fréd and succeeded when I typed
My list is stuffed full of personal details, so I will not reproduce it here.
Instead, I have created three dummy lines in your list; two that follow my format, as well as the line
+New, which I use to add new data to my file. One of these dummy lines contains the Frédéric. (The data is below)
Now, when I read from a file with this data I have the same issue. Interestingly, the line containing just the name
Frédéric can be found by typing
Fré and my data is ignored. Conversely, my data can be found by typing
Fre and the
Frédéric line is ignored.
To complete my test, I loaded this data into your testVar and the result was the same.
You'll see that my data contains an email address, and I thought that this could be the issue, but eliminating the @ symbol has no effect.
Here is the revised data list, the first line is my
+New prompt and the next two follow the pattern I am using:
Julie Smith email@example.com EXAMPLE-FILE LinkedInURLStub-8ab76543
Frédéric Dupont firstname.lastname@example.org EXAMPLE-FILE2 LinkedInURLStub
