Advanced dialog box

This dialog box appears when the Advanced button is selected in the Find dialog box, Replace dialog box, Find in Files dialog box or the Replace in Files dialog box.

Match Only Embedded Newlines in CSV check box

If this box is checked, EmEditor matches only embedded newlines in CSV documents.

Treat CR and LF Separately check box

If this box is checked, EmEditor will treat CR and LF separately. In case Find in Files and Replace in Files, EmEditor will treat CR and LF separately if the Use Regular Expressions is checked regardless of this option.

Regular Expressions “.” Can Match New Line Characters check box

Specifies whether a period can match newline characters when searching for a string using a regular expression. A regular expression \s can match newline characters when a number greater than zero is specified in the Additional Lines to Search for Regular Expressions text box even if this is not checked. Except for the Find in Files command, the actual number of lines that can be matched depends on the number specified in the Additional Lines to Search for Regular Expressions text box.

The following option only appears in the Find dialog box and Replace dialog box.

Additional Lines to Search for Regular Expressions text box

Specifies the number of additional lines to search for a string when using a regular expression. EmEditor passes a string line by line as a parameter to the regular expression function. By this method, however, the regular expression <td>.*?</td> would not be able to match a string between <td> and </td> if the string contains a new line. Specifying a number greater than zero in this text box and checking the Regular Expressions Can Match New Line Characters check box will enable searching for the string with up to the specified number of new lines. On the other hand, the Find in Files command always searches from the whole file independent of this option.

The following options only appear in the Find in Files dialog box and Replace in Files dialog box.

Ignore Following Files or Folders check box

If this box is checked, EmEditor will not search for file or folder names specified in the Files or Folders to Ignore text box.

Files or Folders to Ignore text box

Specifies the names of files or folders to ignore. To specify multiple names, separate them with a semicolon (;).

Ignore Binary Files check box

If this box is checked, EmEditor will not search binary files (files that contain NULL characters even though they are not UTF-16 files).

Show Ignored Files in Results check box

If this box is checked, EmEditor will not show ignored files in the output when the Ignore Following files or folders check box or the Ignore Binary Files check box is checked.

Prompt if the specified folder does not exist check box

Checks whether the folder specified in the In Folder drop-down list box, and if it doesn't exist, displays a dialog box so that a user can cancel the operation.
