      Thanks, Art, I use the caret a lot. My clip library runs over 10,000 lines, with comments, and I suspect it is too much
      of a job to add this comment prefix to all the requisite lines. This is really unfortunate, since my users use pro,
      standard and light.

      I hope that, in a future version, this behavior can be eradicated, so that the versions all do handle clips identically.
      In the meantime, I'll advise my users to use NTPro to prevent erroneous behavior.

      Also (from the RegEx help Intro):

      Note to clippers: By design, NoteTab Pro (but not NoteTab Standard or
      NoteTab Light) adjusts the selection for regex clip ^!Find and ^!Replace
      commands before acting on highlighted text if the pattern begins with a ^
      and the existing selection does not begin at the start of a line. To
      prevent this behavior, when using regex on selected text, do not begin the
      pattern with a ^. If, for example, you prefix the caret with (?#comment),
      NoteTab Pro will permit the possibility of matching at the beginning of the
      existing selection and will not redefine the selection itself.
