[bioontology-support] Request for support for "narrow" synonyms in search

Dear Jennifer / BioPortal support team

EDAM makes heavy use of "narrow" synonyms (currently defined using oboInOwl:hasNarrowSynonym) and these are also used a lot
for annotation in the ELIXIR tools & data services registry (bio.tools).   Currently, the BioPortal "jump to" box does not
support searches over them - and this is causing us a major headache!

Any chance of providing an option (small toggle or whatever) to support searches over "narrow" synonyms? This would be a
massive usability improvement for us!  I appreciate fully why this wouldn't be the default behaviour (it would swamp the
search results) - but an option - it would ace!

Thanks a lot for the consideration and all the hard work on BioPortal

Cheers

Jon
