"Smart" search for DOCman search

Hi, one user requested this in a support query, but I can't see that he actually posted it as an idea. See --

https://support.joomlatools.com/tickets/topic/7125-exact-only-search-modify?highlight=smart%20search

To able to use a fuzzy search on the DOCman search (as opposed to the current exact one) would be the perfect solution for my client. Using more than one non-consecutive word from the document title, then filtering by date and other parameters would allow them to find the document they need very quickly.

At the moment, the client would have to try to decide whether to use the Joomla smart search (which can't be filtered by date, or sorted by other factors), or the DOCman search (which can only be searched for by a single word or exact string).

I hope that you'll consider adding this option for a near future version, as you suggest you might in the above link.

Thanks!
