"find on page" partial words

Questioner General

I want to find the middle or end of a word on the page. If I search for "ind" it should find "find" as well as "indicate." I think this used to work and now they changed it, but I could be wrong.



Is there a setting for this or is this just something that Safari on iOS is incapable of? I mean, if I use chrome on a computer, it has no problem with it. I haven't tried chrome on iphone yet, so maybe it works on that too.

Hello Grumpy512,



Thanks for reaching out to Apple Support Communities. It sounds like you have a question about locating specific text on a Safari page using iOS. We're happy to help.



Check out the section "Search the page" in the guide here for steps to help you search: Search for websites using Safari on iPhone



From testing, it appears only the first part of the word is found. You can also submit feature feedback about the search limitations here: Feedback - iPhone





Cheers!
