"Difficulties using Filter Tokens (by Region) operator"

I am using the text processing extension to extract information from patent files. If I use Tokenization and some other filters (like Stoppword - Filter) it works fine.
If I work with the Filter Tokens (by Region) operators I am getting zero results. The condition is: Contains "Klebstoff", no case sensitive. This expression appears many times in the readed documents. Interestingly, the program complains if I select the option contains that the regular expression must be specified. In my thought I need this regular expression only if I select the match condition. I am wrong here?

My idea is the automatic extraction from patentfiles content around a given subject. Any help is willcome, I am working on my master thesis. :)
For the test I have put in the same expression for the condition regular expression and search string. Without defining the regular expression the filter does not work.

    Posting the XML of your process is a good idea to get help, but unfortunately the XML is not valid.  :'(
