On a separate issue, what is the syntax in LO to select paragraph breaks (pilcrow (¶) sign) in the 'find and replace' dialogue window?

There isn't one. LibreOffice doesn't think that way: you don't search for the paragraph break as such. Instead, you do what you need using ^ (circumflex) to lock your search term to the beginning of a paragraph or $ (dollar) to lock it to the end of a paragraph. Perversely, you can search for a line break (as entered with Shift+Enter) using \n (backslash-en). Oh, but if you use \n in a "Replace with" expression, it means a paragraph break instead.

I trust this helps.
