How to Replace Hanging Indents with Actual Tabs?

I'm helping a friend who has a 272-page, one-file manuscript written with LibreOffice.

Somehow, the majority of his indentations are hanging indents, and I cannot figure a way to search and replace them with true tabs.

LibreOffice does not appear to list them as hanging indents, so they can't be highlighted, copied, then pasted into LibreOffice's search box. But they seem to be hanging indents, if only because hitting return automatically indents the next line.

It's a mess and can someone help with this problem? Or does he have replace everything by hand, one-by-one?

Many thanks for any assistance.
