At home I created a document (translation work) that includes a trademark term, like xxxTM, where the TM is superscript. When I opened that document here in my office all those "TM" superscripts were back to normal font. On both Windows and Linux machines Why? This should not happen in the first place.

Don't know. Indeed it shouldn't happen. Are you saving the documents in LibreOffice's native .odt format or (unwisely) in some foreign format?

I briefly (I am currently a little pressed for time) tried to do a Search and Replace. However I could not figure out, how to tell the computer to make ONLY "TM" superscript. Using the "Format" option does not work, since it give me EVERYTHING in superscript (or normal font). There surely must be a way to do this!

There sure is. Search for "TM" and replace with "TM" (no quotes). Put the cursor in the "Replace with" field and click Format... . Under Position, select Superscript. You might not want to Replace All, or you will change things such as "uTMost"!

Incidentally, you very probably shouldn't be using two superscripted capital letters for this, but instead the single Unicode character "TRADE MARK SIGN" (U+2122), which you should find in all normal fonts. Find this at Insert | Special Character...; no need for superscripting.

I trust this helps.
