    To find one set of parens, and everything inside them, you can use the following in the search dialog, with regular expression checked: ^!Find ([^ ( )]+ )

      ^!Find "\([^\(\)]+\)" IRS

      Use Find Next to walk through the document.

      Subject: [Clip] Help with a regular expression...


      I'm too stupid to understand "regular expressions", but that doesn't mean that I don't need them!
      :^)

      While running a clip in the editor, I need to "find" the text lying in between the two parentheses,
      and also want to include the two parentheses.

      For example, I want the editor to "find": "(SAID ARC BEING SUBTENDED BY A CHORD BEARING OF
      NORTH 69°40'50" EAST AND A CHORD DISTANCE OF 4.64 FEET)"

      there will many of these occurances, with different text between each set of parnetheses. Here is a
      sample of the text: (and there will be hard lines breaks, too)

      I would very much appreciate any help or direction in finding this regular expression. Thank you!
