### How to clear tab stops ONLY at document level?

Tab stops are part of paragraph settings, and can be set at the "style" level.

I have a document "imported" from Word that I do NOT want to use CTRL+M ("clear direct formatting") on.

If one uses CTRL+A to select all, then there are mixed paragraph types, and the Tab "tab" disappears from the Format > Paragraph settings.

Question: Is there a way to clear tab stops only from the whole document, in one go, without needing to select individual paragraphs? I can't work out a way, but I hope someone else can!
