I have a lot of sentences in a paragraph.
For example, I have 5 sentences in a paragraph.
How can I convert these 5 sentences to different paragraphs?
Or, how can I make line break between higlighted sentences in one action?

Search for a full stop and space (or similar markers that end the sentences, such as exclamation or question marks) and use one or more paragraph marks in the replace field.

You should probably include the periods/stops in the replacement field, too. :)

Absolutely. Can I enter a plea of tiredness as the reason for my oversight?

Apologies.
