Fixed numbered lines


M

Hi,

I have to type a legal document that must have fixed numbered lines along
the left margin. The numbering will run from 1 to 28. By fixed numbered
lines, I mean that the numbering does not change position with carriage
returns, i.e., the left margin numbers remain unaffected by carriage returns.
How would I make a template to do this?


Thank you for any help you can give me.

In a text box, type the numbers in manually (each number should be followed by
Return), and then anchor the text box to the page header.

Another way to do this might be to invoke the line numbering function (page
layout / line numbering / restart each page) and then use the paragraph
formatting (in the home tab) to affect line spacing -- most particularly line
spacing itself for double space and then increasing "spacing after" to add
extra space between paragraphs.

But I may have grossly underestimated your problem, too! :)

My interpretation of "fixed" numbering was that it shouldn't reflect actual
lines in the text (there used to be a Legal Pleading template that worked this
way), but I realize that your interpretation is equally likely in this case. :)

It is always a good idea to use Spacing Before or Spacing After instead of blank
paragraphs to create spacing between paragraphs.
