Add or Remove line numbers in Word Document

When I was preparing design document using templates, I found that having line number was useful, especially for review.

Struggled a bit to set this using Office 2007, used Microsoft help to get these details…:-)

  1. On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Line Numbers.

    Note   If your document is divided into sections and you want to add line numbers to the entire document, you first need to select the document. Click Select in the Editing group on the Home tab, and then click Select All. Or press CTRL+A.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • To number consecutively throughout the document, click Continuous.
    • To start with number 1 on each page, click Restart Each Page.
    • To start with number 1 after each section break, click Restart Each Section.

Remove line numbers

You can remove line numbers from the entire document, from a section, or from a paragraph.

  1. Click in the document, or click in the section or paragraph from which you want to remove line numbers. If you want to remove line numbers from multiple sections, select the sections.
  2. On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Line Numbers.
