Probably. The question here is - what should be the scope of the regex? Currently all search terms are for a single word, but this makes regular expressions less useful.


Not sure I understand your question, but I would like it if you implemented a modern version of regex, with lookahead, lookbehind, etc. Regex searches should be able to cross boundaries as necessary, search across line breaks, etc.

It is about twice as slow for medium sized notes. It can probably be sped up by delaying and cancelling searching for 300-500 ms while typing, or making instant search optional. Requiring wildcards by default really, really sounds much worse...

You are right - it's not worth the trouble. Have changed my mind about the idea.

Does it mean that when you work with this note, the bug manifests every time?

When I clip text from web sites, some times, in addition to the text, I also get in the note a bunch of html and/or other tags. for example


Truly sorry about this, but the bug was not fixed completely. The full fix will be published soon in Beta 2.

I see, thanks. Probably wildcards are not of much use to you now, because * doesn't include whitespace characters and thus is limited to word boundary?

Basically, yes... I want to be able (among other things) to search for entire phrases even when I'm not sure of the exact wording so "white[ -]?space" to find "white space", "white-space" and "whitespace", for example, all with a single search (and of course there is a lot more one can do with regular expressions)... in fact, I'd like to have search and replace with regular expressions.

But, to begin with, a way to use wildcards even across word boundaries would be nice.

Maybe what we should do is to allow wildcards to cross word boundaries. (Not sure about newline (=paragraph) boundaries, probably that would be going a bit too far.) Does anyone object to this?

Thanks Thomas. However I can't repro this on a clean fresh install. Can you? When I press ENTER twice, the list gets turned off. Maybe it is settings-specific?
I checked with a fresh installation and could not reproduce. I restored my db and settings and was not able to reproduce with a newly created note either. However, when working on some older note, again i had the same issue.

I am able to reproduce now:

    * create a new note
    * set caret to notes text
    * press Ctrl+L to create a bullet
    * enter some text, f.e. "line 1"
    * press Shift+Enter to create a sub-line
    * enter some text, f.e. "line 2"
    * press ENTER as often as you like
    => The bullets won't go away

Hi Alex,

thanks a lot. I really was waiting on this one. The issue is fixed. However, there is another issue introduced. In a bullet list, if i press Shift+Enter to create an empty line it will also turn of bullets. Previous versions created an empty line (i use as a paragraph separation) and created a new blank bullet. So i was able to write more text.
