      I'm not sure this is a clip issue, he said he wanted to find something.
      .* would be single line in any event unless you had enabled multi-line
      searches, so why are we hung up on \R, \r or \n? I understand anchoring
      and excluding those, however if this is a first time user it's also
      pretty complex it seems to me.

      Great discussion and I appreciate Eb's explanation for sure!
