When searching Dimensions etc. I seem to be getting search results that don't relate to the search term I've used.

For instance, in the below example I've searched Dimensions for the search term "navigation".  The first 4 results make perfect sense.  However the final 2 do not appear to be related to the search term "navigation".

The 2 unexpected results in this case are classifications. Neither the full classification name nor the underlying variable name contain the term "navigation".

Andy: Our engineering team took a look at this. The way that fuzzy search works is that if it can spell the word you typed out of the letters/numbers in a dimension name, it will show those results (albeit lower than a dimension name that matches more directly, which is why the dimensions you were looking for showed up higher on the list). They pointed out that you can actually spell "navigation" using the words in the bottom two results: 

Creative Name eVar71 (integration testing)

So, technically, this is working as designed -- and fuzzy search is correctly putting the desired results at the top.
