I needed to remove around 2,200 manual tabs which I had entered in a very large document (an 80,000-word novel), and just make use of the Return button to obtain automatic indents. The above Answer #1, which recommends using a Search code of "\t" failed to work. I subsequently found that the following does work. First, in Edit (or the magnifying glass icon), Select Find and Replace. Search: \b\t Replace: (Nothing) - Replace All. The logic is that "\b" will find a blank field, and "\t" will then locate the actual tab.
