Weird thing happens whenever I run a project (Windows).

I normally use iOS to code because of this glitch. Whenever I use a tool (Character Designer, Sound Composer, BG Designer) then go back to the .nx file in notepad, all the code is put into a single line. It's also impossible for me to show you a screenshot because it is too big, or too small. Please fix these 2 problems.

This is because it saves the text file in Mac/Linux format. Windows uses a different code for new lines.
But you can use other tools on Windows, which support all codes. You can try Notepad++ for example. It's free.

yeah I know, I dont know why I typed that

but the thing I dont understand is when you use a tool notepad puts it on one line
but for me it looks like its supposed to

LowRes NX can read both “new line” codes (mac and windows), but only writes the mac code when saving.

So if you open the file on a simple Windows text editor, it will not understand the “new line” code and it shows everything in one line.

Notepad++ and other more professional text editors understand both codes.

Within Notepad++, you can use the menu toolbar, Edit --> EOL Conversion --> Windows (CR LF). Just do that after you use any of the LowRes NX tools, and it'll give you the line breaks you need.
