GREP, odd behaviour in InDesign v. 14.0.2
Search and replace with GREP in InDesign version 14.0.2 behaves oddly.
This simple GREP used to work fine:
It matches upper case letters, commas and space between them at the end of a paragraph. But now it only matches some of them.
Based on user response, marking this as Fixed.

I recently installed the plugin to fix grep searches in long docs. Now grep searches are worse--it changes unflagged content and bounces back to beginning of doc when trying to find next instance. I'd rather work around the original long-search problem than these new ones, but don't know how to uninstall. Anyone else having trouble? Suggestions?
This patch was created for a previous version of InDesign. Why isn't it just included in the update of InDesign?
Have you tried this solution?
I had some problems but this fixed it.

@Solo46 I'm currently working with InDesign 14.0.2, which is the latest version according to the release notes (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/release-notes.html) and having similar issues with grep.
What patch are you referring to in your April 29, 2019 11:57 AM post? Is it available to the public?
New problem that could be linked to the GREP problem. Now I cant highlight text in some documents.
I did a quick test on a file where GREP had stoped working. After applying the patch InDesign seems to be back to normal again.
This bug almost made me go crazy. Thanks again for fixing this. Please look carefully into this, as GREP is very important for InDesign.
