    in output files print header all in one line
    It might be that the newline character is being written, but not being displayed properly by whatever program you are using to read the file later. The Windows program Notepad is like this and will often "run lines together".

    The text area (like any JTextComponent instance) has a write() method. You could try using that.

    //bfAll.write(header1.toString());
    text.write(bfAll);
    bfAll.newLine();

    ---

    Here's an example to illustrate the difference:

    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.io.StringWriter;
     
    import javax.swing.JTextArea;
     
    public class NewLineEg {
        public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
            JTextArea foo = new JTextArea();
            foo.setText("abc\ndef");
     
            System.out.print("Using getText(): ");
            writeChars(foo.getText());
            System.out.println();
     
            System.out.print("Using write(): ");
            StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
            foo.write(sw);
            writeChars(sw.toString());
            System.out.println();
        }
     
        private static void writeChars(String str) {
            for(char ch :str.toCharArray()) {
                System.out.print((int)ch);
                System.out.print(" ");
            }
        }    
    }

    Note how the first method represents the newline as (char)10, but the second represents it as the sequence (char)13 (char)10. Notepad will render the first sequence correctly, but not the second. What you get using write() depends on what platform you are using: Linux or Windows etc.
