Interesting question, Seamas. I found a reference here
https://stackoverflow.com/a/27225148 and tried that on LibreOffice
Writer 6.4 and it seems it works:
It can find your "[thus]" without the brackets.
I've tried the various regex in this thread and this last one (above) produces an unusual result
In the Find and Replace dialogue, if I press "Find Next" it finds the next occurence and highlights only the contents inside the
brackets as expected. But the odd behaviour comes when I press "Replace" - it does not replace the contents but just finds the
next occurrence. In other words, the "Replace" button acts exactly the same as the "Find Next" button.
If I select "Replace All", it does just that. I usually avoid the 'replace all' function because
of the possibility of unexpected consequences, at least until after I have used the 'Find Next' and 'Replace'
sequence a few times.
For the other regex in this thread, the "Find Next" and "Replace" buttons behave correctly.
I tried many times also using the alternative expression mentioned in the link above,
|(?<=\[)[^]]+(?=\]) ,|and the result was always the same - in my LibreOffice Writer 18.104.22.168.
