I created a user dictionary today and added a word by editing an existing entry. The entry does not show up in searches, though. I turned on full-text indexing but still no luck. It does not find it by characters, pinyin, or English.
I tried turning the indexing off and on but the entry still does not come up in a search. I'm not sure how to answer the language question, but I did an export and it shows the entry in the order: characters, pinyin, English.
