This has probably been brought up before, but I'll bring it up again.

While the search engine for List Contestants can be ignored, I've found I'm unable to cut keys for my characters with short names unless I assign them a title. As this is a feature that requires the use of SP or DKing, this could potentially be a problem for some people.

I was wondering, if we're unable to bring the contestants name up in the search by name, would the feature of using the account number be possible? (if we know it.)

Sometimes adding a space to the front of the name in the search bar can reduce the number of results, which might help. Give it a try. Smile

This still doesn't work for the key menu nor does it work for the list contestant searches. I just tried.

Oh... it worked for me in both menus? Weird. Well, not it's not perfect.
Incidentally, I searched for "Kew" and " Kew" and saw differences between both (linked screenshots below). It just so happened she doesn't have a title at the moment, I sorta lucked out in that regard. I dunno, maybe the names you're looking for have more common letters in them? Sorry it didn't help!
