Regex term recognition issue

I am discovering regex to optimize terms my glossary, and I am quite happy so far. However, expressions such as the French "|unités* de calcul" is only recognized as "regex" in the Matchboard if a segment contains the term "unité de calcul" in singular without the "s". If the term is in plural (unités de calcul), it is recognized as "prefix" in the Matchboard. I am quite a newby as far as regex is concerned, so I was wondering if this is normal behavior, or is there a way to make sure such an expression as always recognized as "regex" in the Matchboard?

Yes, this is normal behavior. The regex matching kicks in only if the prefix matching fails. Turning off the prefix matching should do what you wish.

Ok, thanks! :)
