    GREP works in the InDesign UI but not in script

      Hi,

       

      I've got a script that searches for content like this:

       

      section 10.1

      section 9

       

      I put this content into a variable called matchContent.

      I then do:

      matchContent.match ( "(?<!\\d\\.)\\d+(?!\\d?\\.)" );
      

      I only want to find the contents with the dot.

      But this only works in the UI. In the script it never finds the digit.

       

      Does anyone know why?

       

      Thanks,

       

      Jake
