How can I create an exact replica of this file in notepad? In particular how do I achieve multiple lines or split the lines exactly as in the picture ?

    By pressing return at the end of the line. By pressing tab before you start a paragraph. You should probably look at ana lternative notepad which is more feature-rish... such as Notepad++ or others.

  • you're also not going to be able to justify your margins like you can in Word; if you're trying to avoid retyping it you could probably throw it into a .pdf, select, copy, and paste the text somewhere else

  • formatting isn't the issue. its splitting the line in note pad to match lines in the image attached

    That's also justified text which is not supported by Notepad.

The picture you showed me suggests that you have a scanned page. If so, run an OCR program to scan your picture then save the result as a text file. You can open it in Notepad and make the desired modifications.
