Searching via regular expressions

I am trying to search on the word 'Extend'. I want to limit my search results where the word 'Extend' is the first word in the Item. Anyway to search and limit the results by using the first word ( ie: using regular expressions would be ^extend )?

I want the results as follows:
Extend blah blah <- I want this to show in the search results
Extend blah blah blah <- I want this to show in the search results
Blah Extend <- I want this excluded from the search results since extend is not the first word

Thank you,

JGM

Kinook - Thank you.

Feature request - Please add a checkbox at the bottom of the Search for windows to search on first word only.

Would rather not have this option because it is too limiting. For example, what if I need to get results from the third word? Why not the last?

I think for this, regex is the way to go.

John, regex has been repeatedly requested by users but repeatedly ignored by Kinook for years.

Not true -- you are the only user that has ever requested regex search, and the responses to your requests contradicted the need for it.

In this thread, regex is really referring to a wildcard search, which is supported.

Thank you for these links. I also forgot NEAR which is very useful for some of my searches.
