Description nunofinote 2004-07-28 12:10:15 UTC
In microsoft word, in menu "edit" "find", we have the option "special" to find 
format characters, as tab stops, paragraph stops, etc... This feature is 
particular useful when importing documents, and to clean them from undesirable 
marks (replacing them with ""). OpenOffice doesn't have that possibility, or it 
has and i don't understand how to use it.

MRU->SBA: possibly there already is an RFE like this....

from issue 28913:
[..] In my opinion to enhance the "Regular Expression amount" is less than half the
way to ease the Find and Replace function for average users. Hardly anyone wants
to learn "How-To-Code-What-I-Want". The best solution is always "easily finding
and clicking on what I was looking for" [...]
