I am trying to add a really simple macro that I can bind to a key.  I just
want ot be able ot add checkmarks to student papers veyr quickly, so I
would like to select a sentence or other text range, then press a key, and
have the ckeckmark appear in a new comment.

I can almost do htis, using code stolen from the web:

rem -- misleadingly named macro adds a simple hceckmark at point, or in
response to highlighted text.
sub createComment
    rem create the annotation object
    oAnno =
    rem Chr 10004 is the decimal for hex code 2714, "heavy checkmark"
    oAnno.Content = Chr(10004)
    oAnno.Author = "Matt Price"
    oText = ThisComponent.Text
    rem check to see if anything is selected
    oSels = ThisComponent.getCurrentSelection()
    If Not IsNull(oSels) Then
        rem I don't know what to put in here
        oVC = ThisComponent.CurrentController.ViewCursor
        oText.insertTextContent(oVC.Start, oAnno, False)
    End If
end sub


You can see that, if there's no selection, I already know how to insert the
annotation.  But I don't know how to attach the annotation to the selected
range instead of just the start of the cursor.

In general, I don't know where to find the funciton references or even the
source code for the relevant functions.  I'm finding it quite difficult to
figure out how to learn to program -- is there comprehensive documentation
