[Suggestion] Add Windows IME compatible wildcard characters to the dictionary

I really like using the dictionary wilcards (. for one kanji, and * for any number of characters). The only problem is that I have to switch back and forth between my regular keyboard and the Windows IME Japanese typeset everytime I want to add a wildcard. That's because neither . or * are typable using IME (as far as I can find).

It's not too much trouble, just hitting Windows key + space, but it would still be nice to just be able to do it all in IME mode.

How about adding new alternative characters? Here's the characters I can easily type with japanese IME: ‘=-」「¥’;・。、

Maybe make 。work as the . (single character wildcard), and ・ can be the * (multiple-character wilcard)?

The "。"  and "*" characters should already work when using the Windows IME Japanese keyboard.  Just type them the same as if you were using the English Keyboard.

If they are not, give me an example of what you are searching for and I'll check.  Thanks!!

Oh, you're right, they do work, sorry about that! I must have tested them wrong.
