Hi, I only created an account to reply to this thread. Today I needed line numbers in google docs for a paper that I do for college (I need to have a certain amount of lines), and the first search result on google was this forum that unfortunately gave no answer. Then, after searching a little more I found an add-on for firefox. Just google:
"google docs line numbers" add on
and it should be the first search result.
I don't know if it helps you or it's what you want. For me it was, and I thought it might help you too if I posted it here.
I must say, that the lines are only visible in google docs, you won't see them exported in pdf though and neither when you print the document. Also, the other persons that view the file must have the add-on installed (like my team colleagues had to add it to firefox), otherwise they will obviously not see the line numbers.
So... hope it helps. If it's not what you need, then I'm sorry for the post.
Have a nice day.

Ok, as I said, I accidentally got on this site, so I had no idea what paperpile was about - I was just searching a way to add line numbers in google docs. I read a little about the app after first posting this message (btw, the app seems interesting, I might try using it for college work ). But I noticed it said it doesn't work for firefox, so what I wrote to you, hoping I might help, seemed to be useless.
So I just googled something for chrome, and here it is:
but you still have the same problems as in firefox: you can't print the line numbers, you can't export them in pdf, and others must install the extension, in order to see the line numbers.
Hope this time it might be helpful.
