ETextEditor v EditPlus

I just realised yesterday a vital advantage of EditPlus on ETextEditor – Support Regular Expressions.

In EditPlus you can search and replace by Regular Expressions which is very handy when you are working on a long text file and would like to do a quick search followed by replace all…but could not find a way to do the same on ETextEditor (something I was expecting).
Let me know of a way you can do that on ETextEditor bypassing Regular Expressions while exploring ETextEditor’s features.

I still think they both are great editors and for the time being I will have to keep both installed.

    And for the issue I was talking about I found out that you can search using Regular Expressions in ETextEditor so my fault for abandoning my exploration quite early on.
