NeoOffice has powerful search and replace functions, but removing various section of marked ([bracketed] text, for instance) cannot be done with the basic functions.

You could use the following macro for this:

sub seekanddestroy4
dim seek
seek = thiscomponent.createReplaceDescriptor()
seek.SearchString = "\[[^\[\]]+\]"
seek.ReplaceString = ""
end sub

The macro will seek all sections of text in brackets [like a suggestion for different text] and replace these with and empty string [no characters].

This macro was written by Matteo Cavalleri and suggested at the wiki by Fabrizio Venerandi
