    GREP shortest match not working even with positive look behind and positive look ahead, ID CC 2014

      Problem: GREP isn't limiting it's styling even when shortest match is applied and with positive look behind.

       

      My expression reads:

      The result is this:

      Backstory:

      I applied a red text color manually to indicate that the text around the ~ is the only thing which should be highlighted. The content between the last semi colon and a tilde needs to be highlighted, and the content between the tilde and the first comma needs to be highlighted.

      It appears that

      .+?

      works for content between a tilde and a comma but not the semi colon and the tilde.

       

      Been racking my brain for hours on this one. Why is GREP being greedy when I am telling it not to be?
