Works well for me and absolutely worth paying $5 for a lifetime license. It's true some Regex features are unavailable but I believe that's an underlying Docs limitation. For those who can't figure out how to use it, email the developer for help. He does respond.

It works! I was able to use it to bold texts before colon and there were up to a 1000 of them. This is great!

It does show up in Google Docs, but it doesn't do what it says it will. It does the same thing as normal find and replace but slower and freezes Google Docs until you reload the page. It also tries to scam you into a "premium" version to use it for more than 30 clicks, but it doesn't work so you're going to lose them all trying to troubleshoot it on the first attempt.

Installed this to try and change hard returns to soft returns but it doesn't support that feature. Honestly it doesn't seem to do much of anything. Totally useless.

I can't tell you if it works because there is literally no way to launch the app.

The add-on doesn't even show up in Google Docs. Based on other reviews, the add-on used to be awesome, but seems to have been consistently getting worse and worse, and I suppose not being able to use it at all is the culmination of that.

It says 30 clicks per month, but it has been well over TWO months, I should have 60 clicks by now, but NOPE! I do not recommend getting this extension. It says 'advanced' but the thing is, why don't they add a 'specific word' button, for example, I searched 'a', and then pressed the 'specific word' button so it would only show the a's in my documents and not the a's in other words. This is just my opinion (which I highly recommend following), but if you think otherwise, I got no problem. Might I add, MANY of the fonts are missing like Comfortaa, Cairo, etc. Owner of this extension, I suggest you live up to your word because u already have a 2-star rating based on average.

I'll keep trying, but I've installed and see no extension. Back to download page, only choice is Uninstall. Not Advanced at all so far.

This application used to be awesome. I happily paid for a LIFETIME license to use at work. I have correspondence with the developer that he would change it to my personal account if I left that position. Great! Fast forward, I leave the position, and the developer says he will not change it over *AND* if I want the functionality (that I already bought a lifetime license for) I would need to pay monthly. The audacity.
