Wildcards don't work for searches inside a document library

    Question

  • I have a number of documents in a library.

    When I use the "find a file" search for the library in conjunction with the * operator I'm not getting the results that I expect.

    For example, I have a document with the title "Test Document" searching for "document" shows the expected result. However searching for documen* returns no results at all.

    This is very confusing to users as when documen* is used in the search centre the expected results are shown.

    Does anyone know if there are any workarounds for this behaviour?
