Different Unicode code points for same accented character - Incomplete text search results

Please see the attached zipped text file. Both lines contain (apparently) the same text, but you’ll notice that the accented characters have different Unicode code points.

Steps to reproduce

Include each line in a different note.

Expected result

When you search for that text by typing it into the search field, both notes should appear in the results.

Actual result

Only one of the notes shows up in the results.


  • Operating system: MacOS
  • Obsidian version: v0.7.3

Unfortunately, there is nothing wrong here. The text looks similar but is not. I tried that text in different editors (word, and vs code) and the results are the same.

Your problem is at the source.
