Default Advanced find and replace

I use advanced find and replace a lot, and continue to be faced with the same problem. Large portions of text are selected when I only want one line for example.

For example is there anyway to make Advanced find and replace select only one tab ^9 or one paragraph mark ^13 within a find field?

For example if I were to search for:

\[\[(*)\]\] (*)^13

and the first line is [[help]]
and the second line is [[john]]
and the third line is [[dog]] cat

Word will select all three lines, instead of just one.

how would I make the coding select only the third line, skipping the first 3?

Thank you so much in advance, this has been bothering me for years.
