I do not manage to replace underlined text by non-underlined.

Hi Ruth- using the "Replace Attributes" feature of the Find & Replace panel can be tricky. I might instead recommend the following:

1. Prepare the "Find what" field.
2. Click the "Find All" button (instead of Replace All).
3. Switch to the document where all found occurrences have been selected.
4. Use the menu Format > Underline (or the palette) to turn off the underline for all selected matches.

Note: you might have to activate the underline menu twice, to get a full toggle to off.

I hope this helps!
