Hi Cor:

OK, that is easy to handle with a trick as user, but possibly also an
relative easy fix (1)?

As I said, when you have to do this constantly, dozens of times a day, it
does become a real issue.

I would have thought it quite simple to save the current position, do the
search and replace then return to the previously-saved position. After
all, if MS can do it then it can't be very difficult. :)

There is an extension which is pretty much a compulsory install  on any OOo 
instance l use and it does what you ask here.
