In the example below, FLP7 doesn't match the criteria:

Deliverable Assessment Form.{0,670}DR_deliv_assess_form.docx

"Search across file" is checked in the Options tab and regexpal.com matches the criteria correctly.
Am I doing anything wrong or is it a bug with searching across lines?

Example:

    <tr>
      <td width="26%" valign="top"><p class="template">DR Deliverable Assessment Form</td>
      <td width="7%" align="center" valign="top"><a href="../../../EPMP_extras/templates/A4/dr_master_pack.pptx" target="_blank" class="template">A4</a></td>
      <td width="7%" align="center" valign="top">-</td>
      <td width="26%" valign="top"></td>
      <td width="7%" valign="top"></td>
      <td width="7%" valign="top"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td width="26%" valign="top"><p class="template">Design Review Master Pack</td>
      <td width="7%" align="center" valign="top"><a href="../../../EPMP_extras/templates/A4/DR_deliv_assess_form.docx" target="_blank" class="template">A4</a></td>
      <td width="7%" align="center" valign="top">-</td>
      <td width="26%" valign="top"></td>
      <td width="7%" valign="top"></td>
      <td width="7%" valign="top"></td>
    </tr>

FileLocator Pro does not yet support Regular Expression matching across multiple lines. Instead try something like this Boolean expression:

"Deliverable Assessment Form" NEAR:670 DR_deliv_assess_form.docx

Thanks for the update, that works.
How far away is the regex functionality likely to be?

@bobm Should be in a v7.x release but not sure which one.
