"Ignore diacritics" option in search

  • Hello,

    I have some documents in Arabic and Hebrew that I frequently search through. But because the text is diacritized, I’m forced to use MS word because it contains such an option in its “advanced find” box. In fact, it ignores diacritics by default; the option is called ‘Match diacritics’. It also has ‘Match kashida’ and ‘Match alef hamza’ which means it ignores those by default. This is very useful in searching Arabic text.
    The way I solve this currently is by using a regex that I insert after every letter of the word I’m searching. But I would like to make a plugin that does that for me.
