Problem description: I'm trying to change a doc that looks like this and found an issue with rexexp find while doing so.
I want to add XX- to the beginning of the cells. Normally I'd do it like this:
but this does not work, as ^ does not find anything. ^A does, but then I'd be deleting the A.
works, but seems like a workaround.
A single $ as search string to add to the end of the cells does work though.
So the problem seems to be with the single ^ only.

Thanks for writing this report, but I think this is a duplicate of bug 135538.

Hi, I'm not sure this is true - or the other bug report needs an update.
$ is working fine, and I think this is a zero length match as well.
Well, I suspect it's the same root cause. But we can change it to just See Also for now. Either way, I can confirm that $ works and ^ does not.
