Application Search (Start Menu) doesn't show at two characters?

If I type w, items appear but no “Writer”. If I type “wr”, the result becomes empty. If I type “wri”, then “Writer” appears. Is this a bug?


Seems to be something in the way it searches for them, if you type kw it will show up. I’m not technical enough to understand why but having a look at settings there doesn’t seem to be a way to change this.

What I was trying to launch was LibreOffice Writer, not KWrite. If you have LibreOffice installed, does it also show nothing on your computer to type “wr”?

No it doesn’t show but if I use li (the first two letters, even just l it shows up)
