Do I use some kind of backtrace here?
I need some help with a long list of text for a index. It is formatted as described below.
I want to find the first line that is bold below (a line without a tab?). And copy that line to each other line until the next line without a tab ... (See example below =)
InDesign can use GREP in find and change and take advantage of back reference \1 \2 etc.
Is this possible to do in one big search? I have several pages of the above described text block.

Can't do it with just a regular expression. It would need some kind of loop somewhere.
Though that loop may be you clicking a button. Fix the Rebecca line manually and see if
works. It may have to cycle through the document a few times before it replaces everything.
