(do|double|xxx|yyy|ccc|ddd€€€€€€€€€€€€|iiii) in find & replace finds all the words I told them to search except "double."

Do is found.

Is it because of the same beginnng? But I have it written whole!

Please, can someone help me do the trick? MANY THNKS!

I think (do(uble)?|xxx|yyy|ccc|ddd€€€€€€€€€€€€|iiii) could be better for this research

I wrote (ccc|(do[b-u]*)|xxx...) and it accepted, in that case.
