There is no NOT operator in RegEx.
Yes, there will be a new version

I could try to make a feature suggestion, but it seems like people have been using this perfectly for ten years without it, so I think I should probably just find the perfect tool for the job before I go too far.
I guess one solution would be to add "negative" keywords as well, like "TableNotNeeded" ... but doing that (and remembering to apply it) seems a bit farfetched for all of my keywords.

Scrivener appears to be using PCRE for RegExp, which would make ^ match start of string. PCRE has no NOT operator, to my knowledge.
