Use line numbers in Google Docs

News | 25.07.2023

In addition to previous updates that give you more control over formatting in Google Docs, such as viewing non-printing characters and enhancements to content organization, Google introduced the option to display line numbers within Docs that are set to paged mode.

The numbers in Google Docs are automatically calculated next to each line in the document and can be configurable for the entire document, a page, or a specific section. Additionally, these numbers are preserved when printing.

This feature makes it easier for you to reference specific content positions in documents, particularly when collaborating with others on long or complex content.

Getting started: After adding content in a Google Doc, select Tools > Line numbers > “Show line numbers.” From there you can modify the line numbering mode and determine what portion of the Doc you want numbers applied to.
