  • Search is case sensitive in regular text query mode, and I don't think it will ever be a criterion for anyone in layer names. If that's the case, it should be opt-in.
  • Conversely, I can't get regex to search case insensitive e.g. /Affinity/i or /Affinity/ig

 

I simply no longer believe that there are any professional graphic designers here. Everything follows suit. Just everything.

You're not using the right syntax for a regex.

If anything works (I haven't tried) it should be (?i)Affinity

You are right that I should have used inline, which can also be set globally or locally. But I have no idea what is supported. Both methods are quite common, but neither works in this beta. I believe the best course of action now is to wait for Serif to fix the current bugs in a new beta, and to clearly and concisely announce which regex support has been implemented, especially if there are any differences that customers should be aware of.

Well, maybe I used too many thumbs in my first attempt, who knows, case insensitive actually works with (?i), so thanks @walt.farrell

Serif, I recommend the approach used by Microsoft where case sensitive search in regular or regex mode is something you actively have to enable as described in my post here:
