  • If you are searching for a partial word end the word with a '*'.  If you search for Hote* you will find Hotel.  if you search for Hote it thinks you are search for that specific word and will only find that word and grammatical extensions of the word.  Hotel isn't an extension of Hote.

  • Sorry, but that's not the way its designed to work.  The only way to make it work is to use the wildcard character when you want to search for a partial word.
