Using Cut and Paste in Macro Record - Writer [closed]

I was wondering if there was a way to "trick" - perhaps through some setting, Macro Recorder into performing a true Cut and Paste into a Find field.

In its automatically generated code, the recorder remembers and preserves the literal value it finds. This is strange.

If in the recording process, I hit CTRL-C (Copy to clipboard) and then CTRL-V (paste) why can't the resulting (automatically generated) code just "blindly" copy to clipboard / paste from clipboard, regardless of what the clipboard contains?

If while running Macro Recorder, I hit DELETE or BACKSPACE, the actual characters those operations find don't matter.

But for cutting and pasting the macro recorder "thinks" literally and not relatively. Is there some way out of this (so that I may obtain a low-budget variable)?
