Ubuntu – Is it possible to do a RegEx Find in Cream (VIM’s derivative) via the dialogs

creamtext-editorvim

In Cream, I simply can't find the RegEx option mentioned on Cream's info page

Basic Features
* Find and Find/Replace dialogs use intuitive search, 
  with Regular Expressions as an option (Ctrl+F and Ctrl+H).

but the Find/Replace dialogs don't have a check-box or bullet-point to enable/disable RegEx.

I even tried using a RegEx in the Find-field, but to no avail.
In the (Ctrl+F) Find dialog: e.*a
… does not find Zebra

Toggling into Expert mode does allow VIM style commandline searches, which are RegEx, but the Basic Features list says that RegEx is available via the dialogs.

Is it possible to do a RegEx Find in Cream via the dialogs?

Precede the search term with \m.
