Writer has a great line numbering feature. This is typically used for legal documents, where every line gets a number in the margin, for easy cross reference. However, the minute you insert a table in the document, the table, which may contain many rows, gets no number, even if the paragraphs within the table are expressely set to be included in line numbering. By the way, this works exactly the same way in Microsoft Word 2010. Writer matches Word’s behavior.
While you can add a column to the table and manually stick in numbers, this is not the same, as they will not be in sequence with the rest of the line numbers on the page.
Is there a workaround, or do I need to request this as a feature?
