       Although that will work ... as will going to the files at the top
[locating format, ...],
            probably the simplest method is merely to right-click on that
one character,
               then click on formating it to superscript ... or any other
change desired.

       that's my [the KISs] method  ;-)

Good evening
This is probably a rather stupid question and has been answered on this
list (somewhere) a million times ...

(The job is already done - manually - so there is no hurry; I would like
to know the trick.)

I had a piece of text (txt file), which contained a lot of things like
"m2" (square meter).
Working in Writer I tried to do a "find and replace" and turn the "2"
into superscript.
But I could not figure out how that works. I ALWAYS got "m2" as
superscript, even I selected only "2" and then format -> superscript.
(after I while of trying I gave up and replaced those number manually)

What is the trick required to turn "2" into superscript?
But ONLY in "m2" and not all "2", since there were lots of other numbers

I think this is simple: open character map in windows (you're in Windows,
aren't you?), copy the superscript two in the clipboard

Go to Writer, Search and replace, put search "m2" and replace "m(paste the
superscript after the m)", then command replace/replace all.
