Create hard lines of X length in Writer

I have a long text document, currently correctly wrapping, that I want to save as text with lines of 55-65 characters and hard line breaks. (I'm converting back into that txt format that people try to remove line breaks FROM.)

Ideal length is 55-65 characters, but a line can go to 70 characters if required. I do not want to divide words between lines.

How can I do this, aside from manually entering paragraph breaks on each line?

(Currently using Writer 3.5.4.2.)
