    Line Numbers on pdf (2003)

    Is there an "overlay" that would put line numbers on a scanned pdf file?
    Thanks.

    Do you want to import the PDF file into Word and apply line numbers there, or do you want line numbers in the PDF file itself?

    I would prefer the line numbers on the pdf itself.

    Then it's not a Word question. I'll move this thread to the Other Software forum.

    Please try to post questions in the appropriate forum in the future. Thank you in advance! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Line Numbers on pdf (2003)

    When you say a scanned PDF does that mean although the PDF contains words it is actually a picture of words and not OCR text?

    If the former I doubt if there is anything that will overlay line numbers but there are far wiser PDF sages hereabouts than I'll ever be so hold on for more informed replies.

    I think Jeff meant that the PDF file is the result of scanning a printed page. Many scanners nowadays scan to PDF.
