Replacing Word Text Preceeded or Followed by Ctrl Characters

The purpose is to replace *'s in the Word text normally bounded by spaces.

One I have not been able to match is the * may be preceded by a control code such as in a bullet where there is the -> code, *, space.

Another is space, *, paragraph code.

I have not been able to match the -> bullet code nor the code at the end of a paragraph.

I have thousands of these to correct and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Generally you can paste the bullet character from MS Word into WordPipe and it will be found. Then you need to add the spaces around it.
