If any row in it contains a number, the whole column is right-justified. Does that even make sense?

you mean you have a programmable "formula" that computes both numbers and strings?
in such a case things can go either way...

good extreme testing but in this case the formula will be considered either number or text and be aligned accordingly

I would love to be able to use regular expressions in the quick filter (minisearch) box.
It would be nice if Ctrl+J would remove the current quick filter (minisearch).

at present it's just for plain name searches, we'll see for more additions in the next version
but then it would no longer be "quick" :)

Regular expressions can be typed or pasted just as quickly as plain text strings…

sure but I have a simple comparison logic for incremental search that won't work if the strings contain special characters. We'll see
