Have to say Vscode is great, but I still have something to complain.

There was a issue about this problem, but I want to emphasize it.

It's hilarious that backref is supported while in single file searching, but not in global. Jesus, what have you done to 'achieve' this complete work? I mean, you add the feature in file searching, while deliberately disable it in global searching. I just don't get it.

There had been a setting search.usePCRE2, but now it is deprecated. You think you can automatically switch to PCRE2, but it cant. Why you think you are so smart, so genius? Hmm, that' a mysterious confidence which disable an useful feature.

There're some editors can use much more regex features, like real auto-switch pcre2, so you guys want to do the same thing, but fact is you fail to it. so if you can't do something ,then don't.

Have to switch to earlier version now, God, I'm really confused.
