It would be nice to make the regex editor available via an item "Edit Regular Expression" in the context (right-click) menu whenever the cursor is on a regular expression in the source code.

An even simpler (or better, additional) implementation would be that if the text cursor is in a regex at the time the regex editor is opened, then this regex is the one being edited.

I just saw the regular expression editor is already in the context menu.

It does not work properly, though:

  • Clicking "Insert" in the editor adds the (modified) regex to the file, but the old regex remains.
  • Just closing the editor leaves the regex unmodified.

  • Component changed from advanced perl tools to Regex Editor
