How to insert blank line in between every line
Is there a way to easily “double-space” my document by inserting a blank line in between every line I have selected or all lines in the document? I don’t see a one-click solution for this under Edit->Line Operations

Option Find and Replace
This will add an empty line to each line.
Hmmmmmm. Well, that might be bad if the OP is using anything other than Unix/Linux line endings. Plus, I wouldn’t think that the user would want to turn blank lines into a bigger section of blank lines.
Search mode: Regular expression
To be better, go with:
(…since we don’t know the user’s setting of the
. matches newlinecheckbox. The above change makes that checkbox’s setting irrelevant.)
Alternatively, a well-placed

For me, that puts too much “blankness” in certain spots (say, between “paragraphs”). But since we have no idea really what the OP wants for this circumstance…
I’m editing a list of trackers for torrenting. For better readability, I want each line to be spaced apart. For example,
Alan Kilborn provided the correct Find/Replace solution. Thank you!
@Alan-Kilborn That worked for me, Thanks.
Had same problem with separating a list of trackers as OP.
@Sean-Shaffer It’s not just for readability. It simply doesn’t work other way. I mean when you copy-paste a list of trackers - it has to be line separated like that, otherwise it just doesn’t work (talking uTorrent here).
So when i update the list in Notepad++ i hit “remove duplicates” and that also removes empty lines between addresses. So then i need to put them back, which this post helped me do. Nice, thanks everybody.
typing this in Find does nothing and some small windows opens :) trying to use Replace messes up whole document, leaving only 2 lines there.
1st suggestion work fine, but that second idk, i wasn’t able to make it work.
