I found the phrase "regular expression" from repo, but was an clear how to make it work. I also saw mentioning that Sumatra PDF does work with regex from this post:

Could anyone give a working example?

Thank you!

All the best,

We don't support regex searches (and the post above puts Sumatra in the "no regex support" list).

This could actually be a great feature. You already have search so adding regex should be doable. There is also the dnGREP which could be a good place to start. Here also has been similar feature request for Okular.

this could turn into a collaboration with dnGREP and Okular.
