Dimension search results may vary if spelling correction is performed.

An important note applies to the options and behavior associated with dimension search spelling correction: in situations where the number of results is evaluated by an option or in the scoring of words or queries performed by the spelling engine, dimension search uses an alternate definition of number of results. Instead of using the simple number of hits returned to the user as this value (which is perfectly reasonable in the case of record search), dimension search instead uses the number of records associated with the set of dimension value search results computed for a given query.

In other words, dimension search follows an additional level of indirection to weight the dimension value results computed by spelling suggestion queries according to the number of records that these dimension values would lead to if selected in a navigation query. This alternate definition of number or results allows consistent behavior between spelling corrections computed for dimension and record search operations when given the same query terms.
