I'm using Notepad++ to create some text file, but I noticed when the generated file is opened in Windows Notepad, the file contents get mal-formated due to the fact that Notepad++ use LF and EOL character, while Notepad expects CR + LF.

Is there any way to change this behavior in Notepad++??

I guess you're looking for the Notepad++ menu entry "Edit -> EOL Conversion". You can convert to Windows/Linux/Mac EOL there. The current format is displayed in the status bar.

Already checked all menus...I can't find EOL Conversion anywhere...which version are you using? I'll accept the answer, probably I'm using an older version of the product. – Hadi Eskandari May 22 '10 at 18:29

I'm using Version 5.7. In that version, you can go to Edit -> EOL Conversion and change the format of the end of line character between MAC, Windows and Unix.
