Windows Search has an ancient bug that Microsoft cannot fix in any way since 2009.

Windows Search doesn't work correctly with the files with Cyrillic text (perhaps with another non-English text) encoded in UTF-8 (for example, .txt).
Files "Notes.md" in TheBrain encoded in UTF-8.
This is the reason why the notes with Cyrillic text are not displayed in the search.
If you change UTF-8 to UTF-8 with signature (UTF-8 with BOM) everything works fine !!!

TheBrain 11 works perfectly with files "Notes.md" encoded in UTF-8 with signature (UTF-8 with BOM) !!!

Please, change UTF-8 to UTF-8 with signature (UTF-8 with BOM) for the files "Notes.md" in the next build of TheBrain 11 to default for search the notes with Cyrillic text or add the ability to change the encoding for notes !!!

Because Microsoft is unlikely to fix it, judging by the posts in the Microsoft community ...

Important: this search bug applies to all versions of TheBrain, that use Windows Search.

Good news, we now have a fix available for this in build 11.0.75. This new version is available on the alpha channel.

The Alpha channel contains frequent updates and provides access to the very latest versions. It is the recommended channel if you have an urgent need for a fix that is not yet available on the Stable channel and do not mind frequent updates.

To get on the Alpha channel:

Windows: Go to Options > Preferences > System > Updates, and select Alpha from the dropdown menu. Then go to Help > Check for Update, and install the update.

macOS: Go to TheBrain > Preferences > System > Updates and select Alpha from the dropdown menu. Then go to TheBrain > Check for Update, and install the update.

For this specific issue, once you have the new 11.0.75 build installed, please click on File > Utilities > Add UTF-8 Signature to Notes...

Thank you,
Matt
