Default Changing Line Spacing W/O Altering Line Numbering


I work with court documents that are line numbered 1-25. Is there a way to change my double-line spacing to single without altering the line numbering? Every time I try to accomplish this, the line numbering also goes to single. Thanks!

Any way? Probably.
A simple practical way, I'm not so sure.

What is the purpose of line numbering that does not number the lines?

Many years ago, line numbering was done by putting numbers in a borderless textbox in the header. This is very klutzy but those numbers would not change because they are simply a fixed text feature, not dynamic.


P.S. I am a lawyer.

You could put the single-spaced text into a borderless textbox formatted as 'in front of text', with an essentially empty double-spaced paragraph behind it containing just however many manual line breaks you need to maintain the desired numbering.

You can anchor a text box with typed (static) line numbers to the page header so that the text box repeats on all pages.
