regex select all - derek211 - 07-13-2020

I think a select all for regex would be helpful. Also there seems to be a bug where the regex option is not being saved when I load my saved list.


Thanks,
Derek

Hi Derek, welcome to the community! Are you referring to selecting the whole text inside a regex entry? If yes, just left click the text, then on your keyboard, hold down the ctrl key then press 'a' - that would select all the text inside that plan. Then just do ctrl + c to copy and ctrl +v to paste. If you are using mac, just replace all the ctrl key to command.

Regarding the bug that you encountered, we're sorry to hear that. It should work just like how you normally save, and load a list. Can you share your findings with our support team? Please provide screenshots or a screen recording of the issue there. Thank you! Smile

Hi Alejandro,
Thanks for the reply. I was thinking actually of selecting regex for all my entries not the text in the entry. Something like a "Select all" button above the regex to select all entries as regex. This is useful for people who block all sites and whitelist certain sites, so they are more likely to regex keywords like education or math regex. I also emailed of the bug.
