Fuzzy Matching Options dialog box

This dialog box appears when the ... button is clicked in the Find, Replace, Find in Files, Replace in Files, Advanced Filter, or Join CSV dialog box.

Similarity slider

Specifies the similarity in percentage. For instance, if you specify 75%, and if the search string is 4 characters long, 3 out of 4 characters must be equal in order to match. You may set this 100% if any of the following options is set. For instance, if you only want to ignore diacritics, you should set this 100% and set the Ignore nonspacing combining characters, such as diacritics, dakuten, and handakuten check box.

Ignore nonspacing combining characters, such as diacritics, dakuten, and handakuten check box

If this is checked, nonspacing combining characters, such as diacritics, dakuten, and handakuten, are ignored. For instance, é (U+00E9) and e (U+0065) will not be differentiated.

Do not differentiate between a half-width and a full-width characters check box

If this is checked, the difference between half-width and full-width characters is ignored. For instance, A (U+0041) and A (U+FF21) will not be differentiated.

If this is checked, corresponding Hiragana and Katakana characters compare as equal. For instance, あ (U+3042) and ア (U+30A2) will not be differentiated.
