Some time ago Brian Barker provided a brilliant formula for finding all text between less-than and 
greater-than signs, namely


I’ve been trying to adapt it to finding text within brackets [thus], but without success. I know 
that brackets as such, as distinct from regular expressions, are identified as \[ and \]; so the 
formula I’ve come up with is


Unfortunately there are two things wrong with this: (1) it finds all text until a later closing 
bracket (seemingly the last one in the same paragraph) but not necessarily the immediately 
following one, and (2) the selection includes the brackets themselves, whereas I only want the text 
that they enclose.

Am I attempting the impossible? Any help gratefully received.
