Hi everyone,

I have been trying to find some information regarding the "Regular expressions" check-box that appears in the Find/Replace dialog box. I have searched in the Help files and online but haven't found anything related to the activation of this option. I use regexps a lot in Word and would love to be able to do the same in WF.

Any pointers?

Cheers,

Charles

Use a text editor Mar 20, 2012

I haven't been able to figure out how to do the regex s/r in WordFast, so I just ended up opening up the TXML file in a text editor (not MS Word of course, but one for XML files), and did the regex there. That gives you a lot more flexibility to use whatever powerful s/r options your XML editor may have.

Sure, that is an easy work-around but what drives me crazy is that small "Regular expression" check box in the Find/Replace dialog box. Why put it there if it's not... there.
