How many 02h00GMT 5146.49 pairs do you have in one line?
It's it fixed number?

Go to Batch replace tab, check on "Use regular expressions".
In fact "enter" in terms of regular expressions is:
\r\n

Now in order identify one pair we can use the following:
\d+h\d+GMT \d+\.\d{2}

First of all you may try the following:
Put into the grid, search for:
(\d+h\d+GMT \d+\.\d{2})
Replace with:
$1\r\n

Now if you need more precise results:
for example you have 5 pairs in one line and each line ends with enter
(\r\n\)

in this case use the following:
Search for:
(\d+h\d+GMT \d+\.\d{2}) (\d+h\d+GMT \d+\.\d{2}) (\d+h\d+GMT \d+\.\d{2}) (\d+h\d+GMT \d+\.\d{2}) (\d+h\d+GMT \d+\.\d{2})\r\n
Replace with:
$1\r\n
$2\r\n
$3\r\n
$4\r\n
$5

yea this works :) but i found in my txt files value like this:

10h10GMT 5200.8 10h20GMT 5205.0 10h30GMT 5203.86 10h40GMT 5203.05 10h50GMT 5208.17 11h00GMT 5208.62 11h10GMT 5210.68 11h20GMT 5210.34 11h30GMT 5208.08 11h40GMT 5206.3 11h50GMT 5203.1 12h00GMT 5200.3 12h10GMT 5205.8 12h20GMT 5205.31

if you see after dot will be sometimes one decimal :( "d{2}" must be change but for what :/

I dont have another data only these problem it is one digit but sometimes is 2 digit after dot

Can you resolve this problem?
i no have idea how to do that

Go to main menu - Action - Options - Batch Replace
check "Modifier G"
so we should enable greedy mode.

Then in above examples use \d+ instead of \d{2}

That's all I verified it works perfectly.
