Funny you should bring this up, as I was playing with it last night. Turns
out that multiple filters do slow down on the Pixel so I was looking for
the One True Regex.
I'm not great at this so would like verification from those who know if
this is what I need:
put "[" & tUnusedLetters & "]" into tRegex
filter tHugeDict without regex pattern tRegex
It seems to work but I'm not positive. Does that look right?
