Use Regular Expression or RegEx Searches with Scrivener

Scrivener has two powerful search features. The standard Find/Replace feature allows you to search for text in the file you’re working in, and replace it. This feature is similar to what you find in any word processor or text editor. Scrivener also has a powerful Project Search feature, which allows you to search all the elements in your project file: texts, character and setting sketches, research, and anything else in any location in the project.

But there’s one more search feature in Scrivener. You can use regular expressions, or RegEx, in either standard Find dialogue or the Project Search field. You may have heard that RegEx is complicated; but in this article, I explain how anyone can use this. Here’s how to use RegEx to find anything in your Scrivener projects.
