TeXShop regular expressions

Postby johnpryce » Fri Jun 07, 2019 4:32 pm

I have 4.27 on a MacBook with MacOS 10.14.4, Mojave.
In TeXShop I often use find/replace with a regular expression.
But the "More Options" panel is completely inoperative and always has been, for about 4 years which is when I first noticed.
Search Options "Single line" vs "Multiline": it doesn't matter what I tick, it always does Multiline.
"Not begin/end of line" and "Delimit by whitespace": ignored.
What is wrong?

TeXShop regular expressions

I hate to say it but the Ogrekit Find Panel is in really bad shape. Trying to use it in Dark Mode is virtually impossible and it hasn't been updated in years. I used to use it all the time but have given up on it and use the Apple Find Bar which has some, sort of hidden, minor regex features but nothing like it should have.

If you know of another Find Panel that supports regex and can easily be dropped into TeXShop please let me know.
