    Issue 1:
    Additional Lines to Search for Regular Expressions.
    This setting (even if not 0) shouldn’t take any effect when the other Advanced options are disabled, should it?
    It is only used by the 3rd option (“.” Can Match Newline Characters), isn’t it?

    But test it with this:
    Default settings.
    Set it to 10000, and disable all the other options.
    Add 20000+ empty lines.
    Find: ^.$
    The Status bar shows the result instantly for the first time.
    ** But searching it again becomes very slow.

    —————
    Suggestion 1:
    One could (often) forget to reset the Advanced settings, which could cause troubles later.
    So I hope the “Advanced…” button in each parent dialog box can be highlighted with a color when any of the Advanced settings is changed.
    As for the “Advanced” button in Find bar, I suggest making it toggle type. When any of the Advanced settings is changed, the button state is pressed.

    Suggestion 2:
    Please consider adding 2 commands (so shortcut keys can be used):
    1) Save current search settings as my search profile.
    2) Restore my search profile.

    Suggestion 3:
    Additional Lines to Search for Regular Expressions.
    I hope the number in this box can be cycled. When it’s 0, and I go on with Down, it turns to maximum. And vice versa.
    Oftentimes we just need a loose large number. And inputting is less convenient after all.

    BTW 1,
    I think it’s not proper that all the controls you use on such settings has no length limit.
    Another example:
    Configuration Properties: General: Quote Character
    Multiple characters can be saved, but are not really supported.

    BTW 2,
    When “Find in Files” box is open, and the focus is in the main window, unable to switch to “Replace in Files” box by using the shortcut key. Or vice versa.
    This is the only exception when switching among the four boxes.

    “Additional Lines to Search for Regular Expressions” can take effect in other cases, for instance,

    a\s*b

    can match any number of whitespaces including newlines between a and b.

    I couldn’t reproduce this issue :

    But test it with this:
    Default settings.
    Set it to 10000, and disable all the other options.
    Add 20000+ empty lines.
    Find: ^.$
    The Status bar shows the result instantly for the first time.
    ** But searching it again becomes very slow.

    BTW 1:

    Quote Character in General page of configuration properties can take several characters, and it is used in “Copy Text in Qutoes” command in the Edit menu.

    I am not sure which other controls you are referring to, but please let me know which one should have length limit.

    I will think about “BTW 2” and suggestions.

    > Issue 1:
    Did you enable the Regular Expression option?
    And ensure that “Move to Start/End” is enabled, or search from the top.

    > BTW 1:
    In “Additional Lines to Search for Regular Expressions” box,
    Hold down any number key a little while,
    Then press Up key,
    It should turn to maximum (10000).
    ** But it’s odd that if you do so with 4 or 5 or 6, it turns to 1.

    > Quote Character in General page of configuration properties can take several characters, and it is used in “Copy Text in Qutoes” command in the Edit menu.
    ** But the “Quote Marks” in Display page is only a list of single characters, isn’t it?

    As for “Quote Marks”, this is different from the “Quote Character” in the General page. “Quote Marks” in the Display page affects how EmEditor highlights the view, whereas “Quote Character” behaves the prefix used when you select “Copy Text in Quotes” command.
