WP 11 Strips Line Feeds in .txt Format


My hard drive crashed recently and when we reinstalled WordPerfect 11 we (of course) had lost all our settings. We've got it saving as plain text for the default (.txt), but when I type something in the document, giving it a line feed for paragraphing (like we do here, rather than indent), then save and close the file, when I reopen it, all my extra empty lines are gone.

Does anyone know where I can find this setting? I know I had it working before but cannot seem to find it this time.

I want my WP 12 .txt documents to retain line feed paragraphing.

Thank you!
