Search field in widgets does not return expected results


#1

Hi everyone,
I am seeing some unexpected behavior from the search field at the bottom of various widgets (for example Events > Event Names).
The problem is when I try to match a term that contains a space. For example, the following searches for an Event Name return no results:
Medienspiegel 1808.pdf
Medienspiegel\s1808.pdf

Matching the space with any character “.” however works:
Medienspiegel.1808.pdf

Why do the expected regular expressions for a term that includes a whitespace not work? Screenshots attached.
Thanks for your help!
