Hi :)
Hmm, sadly Writer doesn't seem to do quite the same thing as GEdit.
Tom, I have an idea that there is a find/copy/paste add-on for LO which
works on multiple files.  I used it when I was using LO for my writing
(I now use Scrivener for books and such).  I could change the name of a
character throughout a book with a simple command.


Yes, I remember something like that as well, but I do not remember what it was or what version of LO it was used with.

That would be real handy for book authors and editors.

Piers Anthony, a highly regarded SciFi and Fantasy writer, used Fedora and LO for writing his books. He is in his mid 70's now so he has scaled back to 1 or 2 books per year, instead of 3 or more. He has created macros to help him do the work he needs and uses a different keyboard layout than the standard QWERTY keyboard. In one of his Author's Notes, he stated that he needed a package that worked with his type of keyboard and had the ability to create/use the types of macros he needs for making his writing easier. He seems to be a big "fan" of having multiple documents open at the same time and editing across those documents.

SO, you should be able to find the extension needed for your cross-document editing.
