While ! means NOT in several languages, it has no special meaning in NoteTab RegEx. Instead the caret (^) character means NOT when it is used within square brackets. For example,
matches anything but a digit.
However when used at the beginning of an expression without the square brackets ^ has a different meaning.
will match "cow" but only if it is at the very beginning of a line.
