Klaus, You are correct. I ascribed the full features of grep to the FrameMaker wildcard search. There is no way to make a full pattern search with wildcards, though you can approximate it, and you will get some false positives. And you cannot replace the pattern with another pattern, you must use discrete strings or elements from the clipboard, etc.
