I just made a bug for this here:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1873180&group_id=45545&atid=443219

“Regular and Backslash expressions should be mutually exclusive.

In the Search dialog, there are two checkboxes:

“Regular expression”

“Allow backslash expressions”

These are two conflicting options, so the checkboxes should be mutually

exclusive. It looks like right now the Regular expression takes precedence

if they are both checked, but you really shouldn’t be able to check both

unless you can actually use both.

I propose that if you check one of these checkboxes, the other is

automatically unchecked. This would solve confusion, and more accurately

reflect how they really operate.”
