    I enable "Exact match" in "Settings>Advanced settings>Search" but it does not work: if I search for "comp" I get results for words like "composito", "compositi" and so on.

    Where am I wrong? Is it a bug?

    I'm using SF 8.0.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hello Stefano,

    This issue has been resolved in the ticket 1014542. Posting it here if it helps others.

    The Exact Match works as expected with the default Search and Search Results widgets.

    As the project was using the custom Search Result widget where the custom Searcher was implemented without EnableExact property of the query builder object, it was not showing the expected search result.
