Typing in a view (scroll to matches) doesn't parse symbols in song names [#15185]

Hi, when I use typing in a view (I have "typing in a view" set to "scroll to matches"), MM5 doesn't seem to parse symbols in song names.

For example, if I search for "Don't Know Much", I get no occurrences, because it has an apostrophe in it.

Other symbols - like brackets, quotation marks, slashes, etc. - also don't work.

I wonder if this could be fixed in a future version of MM5? Normal search, using the search box, is unaffected by this problem.

Thanks, Paul.

Hi, I've just updated to build 5.0.0.2166 Beta, and this bug is fixed now for me, with just one further issue, which I have a question about.

It seems that now when you use incremental search (typing in a view), any symbols (that are part of the search term) are ignored, instead of included in the search.

So, a search for "(radio" returns the song titles: "New York (Radio Edit)" as well as "Hello (Turn Your Radio On)".

I'm just wondering if this is working as intended, or should symbols be included as part of the search term, for this type of search?

Thanks, Paul.
