Using Regular Expressions With CMUD
 
Hello

I may be overlooking s few things here but I cannot seem to find out how to use Regular Expressions with CMUD. I have recently started playing around with RegexBuddy, and ahve tried copied and pasting the following into a trigger:

Longbeard tells you 'As a reward, I am giving you [0-9]{2} quest points and [0-9]{3,4} gold\.'

This will not match on it's own and I cannot seem to find out how to get this to work. I know you can use patterns with %d to get match's but would like to be able to simply construct them in RegexBuddy and then copy paste them into CMUD.

Is this possible? Thank you for any help!

This is a simple fix.
Click on the Triggers button along the top header of CMUD.
Locate the trigger in question and click on it.
At the bottom of the right-hand side of the window, click the 'More +' button to expand the Trigger options panel.
Ensure the Regular Expression checkbox is checked.
