What do you mean new lines are not working in the saved file?

The text in the output file[.txt] is in just one line.

How do you want the file you create to appear ? Note that if the user has word-wrap turned-on in the RichTextBox (the default), there is no tag in the RTF that indicates where word-wrap occurs.

If you tell us the output format you want for what appears in the RTF now as hard (not word-wrapped) line breaks (the user hit the Enter Key), we can probably help.

Rich text boxes don't use newlines in the same way that "text files" do: they work on "paragraphs" of information which split into new lines based largely on the size of the box, not the text they contain. This doesn't translate into "text friendly" information because if it did, when you reloaded the RTB the lines would be "fixed" and wrong if the RTB size changed.

Save it as Rich Text, and any Rich Text editor (Word for example) should be able to read it and paginate it nicely. Text files aren't meant for that!

Click-Drag-Copying the Rtf content of a RichTextBox, and pasting it into a TextBox, will transform \par codes into NewLines.
Try any text editor e.g. notepad++ , wordpad except notepad I am sure you will see those new line.I think Environment.NewLine can handle this.
