I want to migrate my law office from WordPerfect to Libreoffice.  My forms
have the } character that I use where I want to input text.  I created a
macro in WordPerfect that searches for that character, deletes it, and
leaves the cursor at the position.  I've assigned the macro to a key so I
can quickly go through documents.

I'm having difficulty learning how to duplicate this in Libreoffice.
Likewise, I'm having difficulty finding one that already does this.

Help please.  Thanks.

Well, that was frustrating. It was easy to find the ”}” and delete it,
but I couldn't find a way to place the cursor there! That's funny,
because that should be one of the more basic things to do. Well, I
don't say it's imposible, just that I was stupid enough to not find
the answer. Sorry…

Kind regards

What about this?
Type '}' and <Enter>

Open search box at the bottom for '}' character and search it.
Press <Esc> to hide search box, delete '}' character.
Cursor naturally sits where '}' character was.
Don't need fancy macro for that unless you want to repeat this process many times continuosly, but this is not the case.
