What programming language did you want to use? I can move this thread to the correct forum. You should know though that this is not a code writing service. We like to see an attempt at the code from the poster so that we can guide them on where they went wrong.

I guess I have to insert a Macro code inside the Notepad ++ in order to insert a line break after each number of characters...

Is this possible? How can I approach this?

Please advise...

That sounds like a possible task, yes. I've never created a Notepad++ macro but this page shows you how to record a macro. And this article also shares information; basically you have to start recording a macro, do what you want it to do once and then stop recording. Then play it back.

The second article also links to a plugin called QuickText which apparently makes creating more complex macros easier. Again, I haven't tried it yet.

We don't have a forum for notepad++ nor it's scripting language so I will leave the thread here.
