Newbie question (read the Lua pattern documentation)

How to use the Lua pattern switch in Find ?

Tried the following patterns In the Find dialog with the Lua pattern
switch enabled

/sometext.$/ => no match
sometext.$ => no match
sometext. => finds "sometext " but not "sometext more text"

I thought the dot (.) should find all characters. Combined with the $
should it not find
the text "sometext more text" ?
