One client wants me to translate a patent, and the translation should look like a patent, meaning every fifth line should be numbered at the left margin (5, 10, 15, 20...).
Is it possible in Word and how?

Thanks for help!
Heinrich

yes you can Jun 10, 2005

verbatim from Word Help:

Insert line numbers
Switch to print layout view.


Do one of the following:
To add line numbers to the entire document, click Select All on the Edit menu.


To add line numbers to part of a document, select the text you want to number.


To add line numbers to existing sections, click in a section or select multiple sections.
On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then click the Layout tab.


If you're adding line numbers to part of a document, click Selected text in the Apply to box.


Click Line Numbers.


Select the Add line numbering check box, and then select the options you want.


PS: I haven't tried this with multiple columns, but with a bit of luck it should work...
