The usage of Line Numbers in long documents can help readers quickly find specific lines. So, how can we add line numbers? 

Next, I will show you the effects of setting different line number types: 

1. Click the Page Layout tab and the Line Numbers drop-down button. We can see that there are different settings in the list. We can choose the Continuous Reading option to add line numbers to the entire document.

In addition to the three types of line numbers described above, you can also select both Compress current paragraph and Do not Show Line Number at the same time.

Select the content that does not require line numbers. Click Compress current paragraph to skip the selected content and continue with the number on the next line.

If you only want to number lines with content, click Do not Show Line Number to skip the blank lines to number the next line.

Finally, if these still do not meet our needs, we can click Line Number Options in the Line Numbers drop-down list. In the pop-up dialog, we can customize the line number.
