Hi Drew,

Thanks for taking a look at this. For me the macro fails on all LO 6.x.x
versions under Windows. I have the same issue with the macro on LO 6.1.2
under Linux. For anyone who might be interested I have uploaded a PDF
illustrating the problem here:

It certainly seems like all support for the macro has been dropped. The
author's website closed down in September.

Sadly, my macro writing/debugging skills are not of a very high standard
and my knowledge of the macro author's language (Czech?) is
non-existent. Otherwise I would take a shot at fixing the code.

At first I thought it was this Windows 7 box which hates LO, or maybe
it's the other way round. Where I have a myriad of problems that only
affect LO and make it almost unusable.

I just now tried the latest release of the extension (ver 1.4.2) with
6.2Alpha1 and you are correct it fails searching for a character style.
Also, just now, tried that extension with 6.1.3 -> 5.4.7 (all using Ubuntu
18.04) and it works fine for character style searches.

Are you sure the extension is no longer maintained?

Hi Folks,

Does anyone have any info or pointers about how to find character styles
in a Writer document?

In the past the Alternative Find & Replace extension was very useful for
this, but unfortunately it is no longer maintained and something must
have changed in the 6.x series which causes it to fail in some operations.
