The Regular Expressions section lists the regular expression aliases. Aliases are required to configure the Duplicate Line feature. The section contains the System and User options pages, which have the same structure.


The options page contains the following fields:

Value Use this field to specify the values corresponding to the current alias. You can include existing aliases as parts of the current one. The names of included aliases should be enclosed with % symbols. For example, %Alpha%.
