6.3. Line Numbers

If you're a lawyer, Bible scholar, or aspiring Hollywood scriptwriter, you're already familiar with line numbering: tiny numbers in the left margin every five or ten lines (see Figure 6-4). But even in everyday business, they're occasionally useful; you could email a press release to your boss and ask, "Let me know if I come on too strong in lines 5–8," for instance.

Figure 6-4. Top right: The Line Numbering dialog box. Lower left: You can tell Word not to number specific paragraphs by highlighting them, choosing Format→Paragraph→Line and Page Breaks tab, and turning on "Suppress line numbers." Here, for example, that option was turned on for the Heading styles, so that headings aren't numbered automatically.
