RegEx - how to clear entred search request?

Hi,
i the past i edited some ebooks to my needs and i used the build in editor in calibre.

My major tool is the search and replace Tool aka RegEx. I love this mighty tool already, but lately its bugging me. All my entered search and replace requests are still there (saved) and i will get rid of it!

We're not talking about a cupple entries, the scrollbar right of it, is nearly black and i assume i've made several hundres entries. You can imagin i'd search for an old entry, it's easier for me to type it new in and the entires are growing.

The point is, always if i type in my search and replace -code (usally i copy and past it from my notepad) i get a suggestion according my alread entered search requests. My search request isn't exactly the same one i've already entered so the proposal is for me finally useless.

I wish to get rid of all my alredy entered search and replace - orders!
Hopefully someone can give me a hint what i should do or which file i have to erease and where i can find it. - thank you.

Future wish for the ebook-editor:
* Clean search and replace cache - if you opening the editing ebook tool
* a place to store code snippet within ebook editor.

Done!

Thank you!
You saved my day

I looked in the settings and through the menue. Incredibly how blind i actually was. I can remember the fist time i opened the editor/ RegEX and i've found the submenue which i was looking for, obviously I've forgotten all about it. I should be ashamed

Is there a way to clear search history selectively, i.e. only those instances one doesn't need, and keep the good ones? Is there a file in Calibre folders that contains search history?
