System created only one line for the entire payment, instead of a line for each invoice.

Cause

It is not possible to have different payment line items for each invoice if you are paying the all the invoices at the same time.

Resolution

You can clear the invoices separately and generate the Payment File, then system will create different lines in Payment File against different invoices.

You can either enter Memo Lines, with the Invoice IDs, while posting the payment and the memo lines will be displayed in the Payment File.
