Although I have set "no case sensitivity" for "New term defaults..." for my termbase, I still cannot retrieve entries unless the case matches, for example, termbase entry "Schriftgröße = Font size" requires that I enter "F" to retrieve the complete term, in this case "Font size", entering "f" retrieves no results.
Do I need to make so other setting?

Have you checked Adriatic just out? Feb 28, 2017

I seem to remember that behaviour too. It will display a TB match, but if you start typing, it will only match if the case matches, case setting or not.

Maybe it has been fixed in the new Adriatic version just out.

My solution is to keep target TB entries in lower case.
