Examples Of Regular Expression Finds

To match a trailing dot at the end of an outline label

\.$

The \ is needed to escape the dot so that it is parsed literally (instead of as a dot operator). The $ specifies that that a match is valid only if it occurs at the end of a line.

To match a trailing exclamation mark at the end of an outline label

!$

The exclamation mark ! does not need to be escaped since it has no special meaning as an operator. The $ specifies that that a match is valid only if it occurs at the end of a line.

To match chapter/paragraph numbering like the ones found in this guide

^[0-9]+\.?[0-9]?\.?[0-9]?\.?[0-9]?

This will match up to four levels deep.
