I've a Word document that I'm pouring into ID and there are a lot of different tab stops with dot leaders. The dot leaders are a single dot but I want it a 'space-dot' so as to spread them out more.
I can't figure out how to Find a tab with a specific dot leader character and Change to a different one – If it were one uniform body of text I would make a Style with what I wanted and Find/Change it all, the problem is, is there are some bits of text with two tabs, three, and four as well as Bold and Regular mixed in so I would have to make a Style for every version of tab stops and that's more time than I want to take with this.
So, is there a way to change just the leader? Is this a Grep thing?

I think that may have to be scripted?
However, you can do a search for "^t"
And increase the Tracking/Kerning in the Change format (200 should do it)
Perhaps doing a Change/Find so you don't change something unexpectedly.
Thanks. Increasing the Tracking/Kerning accomplished what I was looking for.
