Small problem in searching
#11
I'll just go ahead and make the replacement always then. I'll test with a library of 5000 songs and if I don't notice a performance issue, I'll consider this particular issue resolved.

Thanks,
Mike

Is that really an issue? This is not 1980 anymore. I haven't seen a computer system that didn't have the possibility to enter virtually any character using selected input methods (e.g., dead keys, compose keys). Tablets and phones as well.

Great, you learn something new every day:

Please tell me what combinations of keys/long holds I use to produce
"à", "â", "Ç", "Ê", "ë", "î" "ô", "ù", "Û" using Swiftkey on my tablet?

On the standard Android keyboard, you long press "a" (and several other keys) and an extension panel appears where you can directly choose the accented variants.
I use the Hackers keyboard, which does the same.
No doubt Swiftkey has a similar function, but I don't use it so I cannot tell you. Interesting that you install a replacement input method without knowing what the standard tool does...
BTW, wrt the original question, a long press on "o" also includes "ø" and "œ".

yes,

although different keyboards have different panels (my Archos FamilyPad has another variant). 
I've been using SwiftKey for the last five years because of it's strong prediction engine.

For me, it's just quicker to not have to type special key combinations, long press keys, etc. when I'm hunting for a song--especially since other characters don't require it, google doesn't, etc. so I usually try it "plain" first and then remember for the ø, it's different, so it takes even longer. So, I'm still hoping for this to get changed... Tying it to the langauge of the computer doesn't help: my stuff is all English, but my songs are mostly Swedish and Norwegian, some German, etc.

I did fix this - ø is replaced by o during all searches. Is it not working for you?

I thought you had, and decided I was imagining things. Further checking: It's working properly on the tablet, but not in the Companion.

That's a true statement - I'll need to add that specific fix to the companion as well.
