Try placing the cursor in the start of the text block you want to copy,scroll down to the end of the block, shift+click on the last character.
Adjust with shift+arrows.

The OP is looking for the LibO equivalent of:

Use the search function to locate the end of the text.

Where ^KB inserts a text marker to denote the beginning to the text, and
^KK inserts a text marker to denote the end of the text. Furthermore,
one could set those markers in any sequence, with any number of
operations between them. Additionally, one could delineate two blocks of
text that would remain distinct.

With that description, the first thing that comes to mind is the EXT
selection mode but it doesn't seem to work with Find.

I'm noticing that Find actually replaces the current selection with the
found text, instead of "marking/highlighting" it without disturbing the
current selection. If this were not the case, then EXT, or even STD, would
do what he expects.

Thank you for the clarification.
