Numbered lines in paragraph style [closed]

This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >75 is welcome to improve it.

Finding the process of numbering certain lines in certain paragraphs cumbersome, so I'd like to do as advised on the link text where it says:

You can also create a paragraph style that includes line numbering, and apply it to the paragraphs that you want to add line numbers to.

Having a little trouble doing this. Everything I try comes out as a numbered list, and not numbered lines.

Any help appreciated on this.

That are two different problems "Getting line numbering into a style" and "Make a new style available in other documents". For the latter the template manager is needed, but see .

If your new style appears under "Index", you work in the wrong category. You must not create a List style but a Paragraph style, the left most category.

Do you have followed steps 1 to 7 in the part "To Add Line Numbers to Specific Paragraphs" in the linked text? Do you have created a new style? If yes, choose it in Style&Formatting dialog > context menu > "modify" > "Outline & Numbering". It has three sections. You need the lower one, that is labeled "Line numbering". After you have finished with the style, apply it to the paragraphs by double-click on the style name. If it does not work, please give a detailed step by step description.

Hi. Thanks for your answer. Yes I can successfully do all the steps from 1-7 in the 'To Add Line Numbers....' The problem appears to be the new style.I've tried following the instructions of 'Creating a new Style' from link text. When I carry out the instructions 'Click the arrow next to the New Style from Selection icon and choose New Style from Selection from the submenu;Type a name in the Style Name box', (and I call it 'Line_numbering') it appears under 'Index.' This works for the current document, but if I open another document, and hit F11 for the 'Styles and Formatting' context menu, my new style has disappeared. I've tried 'Updating style' after creating ... (more)
