I need to create another search bar, which is permanently visible. In this new bar, just store the regex lookups.
Then in the current search bar, use it alone, for text and other things.
Another thing, whenever a selection is made, the selection length is displayed in the number of characters.
Currently activating regex searches does not show the length of the selection, and I have to be turning regex on / off all the time, to get the length of the selection.
I have developed some plugins for sublime, but now I have little time to investigate if it is possible to create another bar similar to the existing one using the Sublime API.
They have an idea, if this is possible, through plugins.
