I'm editing and re-writing a draft - finally. It would be so much easier to come back to the same spot in a work if I had a way of numbering the lines of text. Is there a way to have line numbers show up on a manuscript, that are relevant to the chapter or subfolder? Where would I go to "turn on" this feature, if it exists?

Thanks,

TheBard

If you just want them in the Editor then does Format > Options > Show Line Numbers help?
Note, it seems to work on hard-line endings rather than the usual soft-wrapped, so it will actually show 1 number per paragraph (which is more stable of course, otherwise the line numbers would change every time you resize the Editor).
