|Summary||0014432: Make some sense of the search function in the character palette|
|Description||The character palette in its current state doesn't make much sense, at least when it comes to the "Search" function.|
I can search for a key word, like euro or plus in the Search dialogue and I'll get a 4-digit code. I can also enter this code in the extended palette, but hitting enter doesn't necessarily deliver the desired glyph.
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Create text frame and doub-click to enter the editing mode.|
2) Go to Insert > Glyph.
3) Open the expanded glyph palette and select a font that contains the euro symbol.
4) In the base dialogue click on the magnifier symbol (i.e., search).
5) Enter the search term "euro". Now you'll get two 4-digit codes for the euro symbol, which you can enter in the expanded glyph palette, but upon hitting enter nothing happens. This is different from the 4-digit codes for the "plus" sign, which actually works.
6) Entering a full Unicode string like "0x20A0" in the expanded glyph palette isn't possible, because it is restricted to four digits.
|Additional Information||So, what is this search function actually good for? It doesn't even make it clear where something is being searched for. Unicode in general? A particular font?|
