pls add to Find help with NEAR two words in chosen distance with RegExp

I tried

\bword1\W+(?:\w+\W+){1,6}?word2\b

or (for possibility in reverse order)

\b(?:word1\W+(?:\w+\W+){0,5}?word2|word2\W+(?:\w+\W+){0,5}?word1)\b

but without success

Hi,
it seems, PSPad doesn't support non-capturing groups via: (?:abc)
you can probably try normal grouping parens (abc). - I only briefly checked the first pattern, and it seems to match somehow, but I don't know the actual specification, cornercases etc.

hth,
