This was great and thanks! Here is a further issue along similar lines:

The previous answer was great and thanks! A further issue, related but different. I need to add a snippet of text before yet another kind of formatting:

A document has some of the text has characters in a shade of green. When I look at Font Effects it shows me that color and indicates it is color "User". Beyond that I cannot figure out how to indicate it in Find and Replace. Is there a way?

It is not possible for users who come across your question to know what previous question or answer you are referring to, as Ask LibreOffice is not organized like a traditional message board. Consequently, your thanking is puzzling and we don't what the previous issue was.

The extension “Alternative dialog Find & Replace for Writer” is currently the easiest way to search for specific formatting and replace it. You can use it to search for styles and manual formatting, and to apply given styles of any kind (paragraph, character, list etc.).
