Simply put, the only thing I still use evilMicroSoft Word for is the 
find/replace function. Ye can find and replace 'most anything, which is 
something I do quite a bit. This may have been fixed in a more up-to-date 
version, but I don't know. If this is something anyone else finds 
useful/important, I'd appreciate someone wise in the ways of code having a look 
at it.

Please explain more about your problem, your information is not enough 
to investigate the problem. 

Please try using the latest OOo 1.1 Rc4, 
Your version already old enough, and many bug fixes since your version 
and 1.1 RC4. If the problem still happend in 1.1 RC4 please report back 
and Feel free to reopen it again.

marcinowski has right. me also use very much find/replace, for instance to
replace 3 enters with one (in ms-office replace ^a^a^a with ^a) or replace 5
tabs with 12 spaces and so on. regular expressions are great for the skilly user
but not for the mass. so ms-office will still be the best in this issue.
don't leave regular expressions but FINALLY add a simple manner to replace
special characters!!! like this it is unusable...

I just figured out how to use this facility, or I would have noted this earlier.
I, too, massage documents and emails fairly regularly and really miss how easily
MS Word made dealing with this issue (EOL/paragraph/NL marks) of Find and
Replace. So far, for me, this has been the only problem I've had with OO.
Unfortunately, it is a major problem. The price is right for the suite, however,
this makes it feel like I'm wearing a great looking, expensive pair of shoes - 
that are about a size too small.
