How to Add Line Numbers to Word Documents

Microsoft Word allows you to add line numbers to your document. This is done in the following manner:

  1. Position the insertion point in the section that you want to have line numbers. (Line numbering can be controlled on a section-by-section basis)

  2. Choose the Page Setup option from the File menu. Word displays the Page Setup dialog box. (See figure below)

  3. Click on the Layout tab. (See figure below)

  4. Click on the Line Numbers button. Word displays the Line Numbers dialog box. (See figure below)

  5. Enable line numbers by clicking in the Add Line Numbering check box.

  6. In the dialog box, specify the number at which you want to begin the numbering and the other characteristics you want used. (See figure below)

  7. Click OK to close the Line Numbers dialog box.

  8. Click OK to close the Page Setup dialog box.

  9. You should note that you can only see line numbers when working in Print Layout view. If you are working in one of the other views, then the line numbers are hidden. (See figure below)
