Search Bar Omnibox displaying incomplete results

(I'm using Sitecore 8.1 Update 2 using MVC with the June release of Coveo for Sitecore 4.0)

I have a search box at the top of my pages that looks to be redirecting the user to the search page just fine. However, the Omnibox's suggested results only seem to return results using the whole word. Examples below.

When I type in "a", I get links to a couple test documents. When I type in "artic", nothing is returned. When I type in "articl" or "article", I get a complete list.

Any ideas why this is going on?

That is the expected behavior of the omnibox result list as the standard search page. It will return result matching the whole keywords.

If you want partial word matching, you cannot have suggested results but need to switch to suggested queries instead.
