      yes you can
      I think a clip would be the most efficient if you do it often, but a regex
      search and replace would do it fine also

      open search and replace (after making a backup copy of your file ... just in
      case 8^)
      search for \s{\s*}
      which will find any instance of two or more spaces
      or \s\s{\s*}
      which will find three or more, depending on preference
      and replace with
      which is a tab.
      You may want to use view > non-printing characters before doing this so you
      can see what you are finding and replacing.
