Insert Line Numbers

When sharing a large document with others, sometimes you need to have someone edit a section of text. The best way to do this is to add line numbers to the document. When the document is in final copy, remove the line numbers.

To add line numbers:

Go to Page Layout tab on the ribbon
Page Section group
Click Line Numbers icon

Select one of the options from the drop-down list
Click Line Numbering Options...

Click Layout tab

At the bottom, Click Line Numbers... button

The common option is Continuous /OK

Line numbers will automatically be added to the left side of your document.

To remove line numbers, remove the check mark in the Line Numbers (previous image) / OK
