Here's how the tokens are dropped from the query: https://github.com/typesense/typesense/blob/single-index-concurrency/src/index.cpp#L2949
We drop from right until the middle of the query, and then we drop the left until the middle. What we want to do now is to make this behaviour configurable, with the default behavior unchanged but allowing people to choose left -> right or right -> left as options.
This will require introducing a new parameter to the
search_fieldfunction and its parent functions. The API level configurations are managed in this function here: https://github.com/typesense/typesense/blob/single-index-concurrency/src/collection_manager.cpp#L515
