Enhance the SEARCH capabilities
This software is wonderfully great. Thanks to the whole team.
But howevet, except the handicapped searching function which disgrace the whole job.
Much grateful if the team can enhance the searching capabilities, say, any partial word in a record can be searched.
Thanks for your consideration.

Also it would be great if you could search for a value that is in a specific field. For example, if you would like to find an entry with an item_ID of 40 (something like this maybe Item_ID:40). So you would end up getting the specific entry and not everyone which has 40 mentioned somewhere.
Critical missing link in this app. Other apps have this function. Anyway the search function seems to require a delimiter (space, comma semicolon) as a starting point- no wildcards work. Please meet the users half way between a full Regex implementation and a simple wildcard capability. Two (inconvenient and time-consuming) methods are: 1. Export as CSV and search it with any editor or app. 2. normalize the data fields further by breaking down numbers into logical delimiters so that Memento can find them. For example the phone number 12065551212 could have spaces, commas, or semis as such 1 206 555 1212. If you have gobs of data already, you may have to parse or apply some 3gl program, macro or other approach to reformat existing data. This problem, if not addressed will detour many users and ultimately result in a loss of business for Memento. Hopefully it is resolved. Thanks in advance for this feature, or at a minimum, an explanation for why, it is impossible to code (so that we can consider other options).

I agree, you should be able to add a wildcard at the front of the search string such that *ware will find software, hardware

I agree, it would be great if searching for part of words, as I'm using #tags it would be very useful if the search tool could ignore the the #
