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 the number more 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.
