Pamac package search suggestions only with exact matches

When searching for programs in pamac by entering the first letters of a search term, there are suggestions that match the exact program name only. After hitting enter, a filtered list of programs is shown with all programs. Example: a search for “calculator” doesn’t show any programs until pressing the enter key.

As far as I remember, that used to be different: until some months ago, the list of programs shown was updated after each letter in the search term.

Is there a setting I missed?

No, just a dozen forum threads or more.

Yes it is like that, yes it changed, yes it is on purpose, no there is no setting.

Thanks for clarifying.
