Dear sir or madam,

is it possible to update FoxTrot Pro?

Could be good if it would be possible to find results with or without using diacritics symbols.

For example - searching keyword "Čeněk". will be result everything included "Cenek" or "Čeněk" or "Ceněk" etc...

By default, FoxTrot ignores accents and other diacritics, so searching for [Čeněk] should find [cenek], and vice versa.
If you do NOT want this, with FoxTrot Pro, use this query: [contents, any metadata or filename] [includes the exact string] [ignoring: (nothing checked)] [Čeněk]. Then it won't find [cenek], [Cenek] nor [čeněk].
