How to remove all text between <>?

I would like to find any cases of <> and replace them and all the text enclosed in a Calc document.

I cannot find an expression that allows for an unknown number of wildcards between the brackets. I also think it is treating the < and > as special characters but they do not seem to be able to be made exempt using \, so nothing is coming up when I search.

Any suggestions?

Either with wildcards enabled search <*> or with regular expressions enabled search <.*>

For the regular expression engine used in LibreOffice < and > are not regex meta characters or operators, see also
