CM Tooltip (CMTG) - Index - The Alphabetic Index
Glossary Index Alphabetic Navigation
Use CaseThe use case Creating a Glossary in a Non-English Language is relevant to this feature.
What is This Feature
The Alphabetic navigation is a box that filters terms based on their first letter.
The tooltip Glossary Index Page can support any UTF-8 characters, allowing you to build an alphabetic index for non-English terms.
Finding the Settings
You will find the settings in Admin Dashboard → CM Tooltip Glossary → Settings → Glossary Index Page tab.
Scroll down to the section called Alphabetic Index.
To start using the tooltip glossary in a UTF-8 characters set, all you have to do is enter characters used in your language, separated by a comma, into the box titled Letters in alphabetic index, as shown in the example below:
Changing the Letter Order
The index will respect the order in which you place the letters in the "Letters in alphabetic index" setting. This is useful for languages that contain characters not present in the English alphabet, such as "ż", "ß", "ø" and so on.
You can also select which letter that should be the preselected letter.

TIP: Adding Separator Line
To increase readability, you can break the alphabetic line filter into two or more lines by adding "|" between the letters in the setting, as if it was another letter.
Put "|" between letters separated by commas where you would like a new line to appear:
Below is an example of a frontend alphabetic filter with a new line after 'c':
