RE: Searching Backwards
- Ok, one problem fixed, I was searching for the wrong character. I wanted > not <.
Sorry about that.
The clip works now, but I still haven't figured out why I can't use regular expressions in a backwards search.

Subject: Searching Backwards
Is there a bug in searching backwards?
I'm using Note Tab Pro 4.86 (Full Release).
Whenever I perform a Find operation using the B option, it seems to perform questionable results.
^!Find "\<\/h[1-3]\>" CIBRS
Refuses to search backwards.
I'm just trying to identify headings on an HTML page using the following clip:
^!Find "\<\/h[1-3]\>" CIRS
^!Find "<" BS
This works fine on the first try except although the second Select_End is not jumping the cursor to the position directly after the < character but is instead selecting /a>. I'm not sure what's causing this. I've tried using Select_Start instead but that gets me the entire </a> tag.
Why can't I use regular expressions in a backwards search?
Why does Select_End act oddly directly after a backwards search?
Is there someway to reset the search settings after performing a backwards search?
Thanks for any help.
