I'm using winscp to grab a text file over sftp. When I retrieve the file and save it to my local machine the formatting is off. I have to open the file in Wordpad, save it as is and then it opens properly in Notepad. If I use another ftp client I don't have this issue. Thanks in advance.

You may need to use Ascii/text transfer mode:
