Inserting Line Numbers in Microsoft Office Word Documents

In legal documents, line numbers are placed on the left-hand side of the printout to assist in referencing specific lines in the document.  Microsoft Office Word can do this for you automatically, counting the lines in a document and displaying the appropriate number beside each line of text.

For Word 2003 and prior versions:

1.     File menu
2.     Page Setup
3.     Layout tab
4.     Line Numbers button on bottom left

For Word 2007 or 2010:
