I would like to sort Chinese characters from a paragraph form (to a list with "paragraph returns" after each character). I am using LibreOffice Calc (can also use Writer), on my Xubuntu 14.04 distro. Thank you.

I was advised via email to make a Macro inside of Writer. It worked (under tools). Update -- the Macro worked, but it was limited by my amount of patience in making a pattern. THEN I tried the method of search/find and replace given by the person who answered my question -- and it worked!!! Thank you so much--I tried for several hours to do this before. Thanks again.
