Well, if Nick is right I didn't understand your question correctly.

If you want to search within the tagged files for your string, then, no ZTree does not support RegEx.

However, ZTree has a neat little feature called an F9 menu. You could use that to invoke a (windows version) GREP program that will do just what you want. (Google windows+grep). It supports RegEx and there are freeware versions available. The RegEx search pattern is quite trivial, namely: "^LLX.+?$" (without the quotes).

Then all you will have to do is tag your files, press F9, scroll to your F9 script and press enter.

HTH, Art
