I am making a personal book that has a Dutch translation of Homer's Iliad. In the Word-docx, I added linenumbers. In the PB however, they don't show up. Is there a way to do that?

And how do I make a milestone so that it scrolls (sections only). Something like this - [[@Homer:Iliad 6.1]] - doesn't work.

Btw, I don't mind if it doesn't scroll at every line.

I found a way to add milestones. But still wondering how to show the linenumbers.

Please illustrate how you did this e.g. copy and paste a small section of your docx file.

I followed the instructions that I found on the Microsoft website:

This is how it looks like:

The instructions state "To view line numbers, you must be in Print Layout view", so it seems that line numbers are ignored when compiling a PB as they are not meant to be part of the actual document.

You must do this manually if you want them included with your PB.
