    peterm54067568

      Hi All, I have the following issue

       

      I have been given a word document that I need to format in Indesign and the word user has used a lot of crazy formatiing

       

      Issue

      1  (a) test text

      Or they may have done

      1     (a)       test text

      Or they may have done

      1       (a)    test text


      I want to replace the spacing between the 1 and (a) with a tab. because the spacing varies between the 1 and (a) I cannt find a wildcare to work. The document is massive and I dont want to manually go through it deleting spaces 


      Help apprecited
