^32 is just the HTML code for a standard space character. In the Find or Replace boxes, ^32 is more visible than a space character typed from the keyboard. Space characters typed from the keyboard can easily be overlooked.

Deleting all tab characters is easy with Find/Replace if you replace each tab character with a space character:
Find: ^t
Replace: ^32
Inserting new tab stops can be done with a dedicated style having appropriate tab properties.

In MS Word, you’d use a text box. However, Atlantis doesn’t yet support text boxes.
