3.13.2 Regexp and plain string matching

Sometimes you need to select an option to use regexp matching, as the default behavor uses a plain string comparison. For example, see Advanced Filtering.

Other areas always use regexp matching, such as the search target in some modes of the The Search Files tool, and editor commands with names containing "Regexp" .
