Gedit is a text editor, not a document writer. It does not support text formatting like line spacing, fonts and alignment.

Save the file then run:

fmt -w 50 /path/to/inputfile.txt | sed G > ~/result.txt

Thanks Curtis Hovey, that solved my question.

Mine is a kind of work around. If you want longer/shorter lines, change the 50 value :) It will work :)
