In Word , you used to be able to type search for ^p to represent a paragraph mark.
Is there any other way to do this in open/office or libre-office??
ie, what character represents a paragraph mark.

I used to automate conversion of large documents by searching for these marks and changing the required character.
Any ideas helpful... have already tried the help, and disabling auto-correct feature doesnt do it for me!

"$" represents an paragraph break. Under More Options you must check Regular Expressions.

You can not find anything after a paragraph break so $$ will fail.

You can search for \p using AltSearch:
