Default How do I add brackets to multiple words in a WORD document?

Specificity helps. Those are paragraphs you're bracketing, not words. Clear
the 'Use wildcards' checkbox, then --

Find: ^p
Replace: ]^p[

Then manually insert the [ in front of the very first paragraph.

Thanks Jezebel, but I guess I need to be more specific. Let's say I have a
list like this (the specific words don't matter):

test
test one
test one two
test one two three
test one two three four
test one two three four five
test

and I want the list to look like this:

[test]
[test one]
[test one two]
[test one two three]
[test one two three four]
[test one two three four five]
[test]

How do I do this? Keep in mind that I have a list of over 300 phrases
ranging from 1 to 5 words in length. Your help is greatly appreciated.
