I need to find all text where there is a paragraph return followed by a new paragraph with a first line indent of .5 inches into to the same text followed by a new line and then a tab. Or at least I need to convert all first line indents of .5 inches into tabs. I suspect this could be done with GREP but I have no idea how. Any help would be much appreciated.

If you can simplify it to your sentence above, this works. You could also set the tab stop (if it isn't at .5") in the Change Format field.  ~Barb
