Hi again,

Another simpler approach, with a filter:

#+TITLE: The kessel run in 12 parsecs
#+AUTHOR: Han Solo !!! Chewbacca !!! Lando Calrissian

#+BIND: org-export-filter-plain-text-functions (author-lb-filter)
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :exports results :results none
  (defun author-lb-filter (text backend info)
    (cond ((org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'odt)
           (replace-regexp-in-string "!!!" "\n" text))
          ((org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'latex)
           (replace-regexp-in-string "!!!" "\\\\\\\\" text))))


Best regards,
