Bug? Search ignores phrase when part of a longer word.
I was searching for some text, but N++ missed one occurrence b/c it wasn’t a “whole word” (despite “Match whole word only” being unchecked.

@Mugsys-RapSheet It seems you did rather highlighting by clicking on R9ZRoom222 than searching? If so, R9ZRoom222_Icon was not found by the highlighting mechanism, which looks correct to me.
@datatraveller1 Maybe I’m wrong, I don’t know how the highlighting mechanism is supposed to work. It might indeed be nicer if R9ZRoom222_Icon was found by the highlighting, depending from the Find settings.
I don’t know how the highlighting mechanism is supposed to work.
It’s written in the online manual here. There are various settings which may well have contributed to the OP’s issue. Unless they respond we may never know.
PS when I saw the OP’s question I went another direction, zero-width characters, but after seeing your response I think you might have the reason.
@Terry-R Thank you, so if highlighting was the real issue, the OP could uncheck
Settings - Preferences - Highlighting - Matching - Match whole word onlyor probably even better, the OP could use
Settings - Preferences - Highlighting - Matching - Use Find dialog settings. I think I’ll use this setting in the future.
