In my glossaries I make extensive use of regular expressions, being this one just an example:
|abet(e|i) giappones(e|i) |japanese fi(r|rs)
which is not easy to the eyes. Now, would it be possible in a new CTE version or build to hide such symbols so that it may only appear:
abet| giappones| japanese fir|
or something similar?
abete giapponese;abeti giapponesi \t japanese fir;japanese firs
This is just an example; in certain cases I need four variations to cover gender and plural. Therefore, regex is the shortest way, besides being the most elegant.

What you said certainly makes sense, but I already swore (but only to myself) that CTE will be my last CAT tool, which I want to serve me well for another 6-7 years. Then, kaput!

Like with Ron's Editor:
Oh, that's interesting! I have been spending many days reviewing my main glossary to delete unnecessary entries and using regex whenever possible... But I like mandala-like works, so I may decide to restart from zero again (the first time was when I created the glossary after a massive TDB conversion). CTE is giving me much work, but I am convinced all these efforts are going to pay off.
