File include patterns not working in Find in Files dialog

The help for the Find in Files dialog says that File or pattern should be of the form: *.cpp *.hpp *.h but that doesn't work with ripgrep. Using a space as a delimiter just returns an error and using the older delimiter of a semicolon causes grep to finish instantly with no hits. It looks like ripgrep need a syntax like this: *.cpp -g *.hpp -g *.h in the file or pattern dialog.

This does look like a regression issue that has been introduced when the Find in File was changed to work with ripgrep instead of fgrep.

The Zeus help documentation will be updated to reflect this.

Thanks for taking the time to report this issue.
