Hi. The way I have done this (because I couldn't work out another way) is;
check regular expressions

Find $
Replace (*) this sequence of 3 characters can be anything but should not
occur in your text.

Find \(\*\)\(\*\)
Replace \n

Find \(\*\)
Replace \n

These 2 are the same solution.

It works fine when a 'find and replace' is preformed on a single
paragraph mark, i.e. hard return, appears as ¶,is replaced with
anything else.

I have a similar problem.

I sometimes, especially when copying and pasting text from a WEB page,
find 2 hard returns one after another.

How can I search for double hard returns, ¶¶, and replace them with
single hard returns, ¶.

Tick "Regular expressions" in "Search and replace" dialog. Search for $,
replace with space.

In your case replace with \t
