Unhappy Where is the "minimal matching" in the Newest Sigil

Hi

I have been using the older version of Sigil where minimal matching is a checkbox. Where is it now in the new version? Also, in the older version we have search direction: All, the new one only show Up or Down in the list box. How can I do a search for both directions at once?

Please help
Thanks

Put a ? after the + or * to make un-greedy

IIRC Replace All will start at the Top of the Book regardless (I know Count does).

Or you add (?U) at the beginning of your search.

You can do minimal matching using either:
- put a ? after the + or * to make it un-greedy as theducks said
- put a (?U) at the start of your regular expression as Toxaris says

I recommend using Regex DotAll so that your regex's automatically extend over multiple lines, which is generally what's needed.

If you use Replace, then the search will just wrap around now to allow you to search the whole document.

Count/Replace All cover the whole document and ignore Direction.
