Numbering Lines

Many legal documents use the formatting convention of numbering every line of text to make it easier for multiple parties to refer to very specific text in a longer document in the context of their discussions. Other types of documents that sometimes use this convention are movie and television scripts. You can have Word automatically number each line of text within a document.
