I think you are asking for spell search to have a toggle/configuration item that causes it to ignore/delete characters that don't match.

So you could just keep typing any old rubbish, and when there is a hit, ZTree moves a character along.

For my use of spell search I wouldn't want that, but if enough people think its a useful behavior, I don't object to it being a non-default option.

I always want to only find files/directories that match exactly what I have typed, either begins with using the Active mode, or in the name using the prompted mode using *stuff*.*, I have CO-6I=No.
