need help with regex in non-translatables glossary

I am a total newbie with regex, but I would like to create a glossary that lets CTE recognize numbers in parantheses, such as (10), as non-translatables that can be simply inserted with the parantheses.

After reading a little about regex, I created a new glossary, marked the "regular expressions" and "non-translatables" checkboxes, and added a line with


I would like CTE to recognize the parantheses, any number between 0 and 9, with up to 4 digits.

Hey Igor, do these checkboxes exclude each other? If so, can you please make them outgrey each other upon selection? That would be clearer.
