Problem with a simple search

Post by billt777 » Wed Jan 24, 2007 6:34 pm

I have a text file which has GND, AGND, CHGND, DGND, but I only want the instances of GND to be found. I keep getting the GND portion of AGND, DGND, CHGND, etc. What am I missing?

You are missing the "Whole Words only" option. Please check this option
and it will work.

In fact it depends on many factors. For example, if you use "Batch
Replace" operation with checked "Use Regular Expressions" option then
the state "Whole Words only" option is not used.

The best way to resolve your question:
Send us (support@abacre.com) one of your sample files and your
default.cfg file located in the folder where the program is installed.
