I've been using NP for a while but still have lots to learn.
Just curious if there are any tools to append a series of lines with a character .
Also, what is easiest way to search and replace/remove line breaks in a text file.
I recommend Advanced fnd/replace (control+r) without regex. See http://notepad-plus.wiki.sourceforge.net/FindReplaceNewlineHowTo for details.

If you don't want to answer the question, just don't bother to answer it.
I'll remove such unfriendly post from now on.
That's funny. I keep reading the same answers and comments to the same messages over and over again. Would you end up removing all the questions as well?
Take a look at this similar question, involving inserting text at the beginning of each line:
"Insert Filename and Macro"
Notice that in regex mode you can scan for the end of a line by using $ at the end of the regex.
You can select the lines to work on in advance.
Press CTRL+F or CTRL+R. Check if the Selection checkbox is checked then.
Regular expression: checked.
Notice that this will NOT work for EMPTY lines, because in regex mode a real selection has to be made in order to replace it.
In normal mode you can use CTRL+R advanced Find/Replace dialog to enter linebreaks by CTRL+M, SHIFT+Enter or CTRL+Enter. You can simply search for them and replace them the same way.
Insert the linebreak (CTRL+M or SHIFT+Enter or CTRL+Enter)
,CTRL+M (append a linebreak to the comma)
Replace all occurrences.
Notice that this method may not work for the last line of your file, as it may not have a linebreak. (Why do we call these things "End-of-line"? If it's not there, the line still ends...)
Correction: in regex mode the found character should be grouped.
This way the \1 will contain and put back the found character, instead of nothing.
This avoids _replacing_ the last character by a comma, instead of appending that.
Also here, the CTRL+H Replace dialog will find a match (and replace/add) on the same line over and over again.
Use the CTRL+R advanced Find/Replace dialog.
