### Add line numbers using lineno.sty in RevTex 4

2. Unpack it (unzip lineno.zip) and copy all lineno/*.sty files into the directory that contains your Latex document.
3. In the Latex preamble include the line
\RequirePackage{lineno}
before the \documentclass{...} command.

Note: this is necessary due to incompatibilities between the lineno package and RevTex. If you are not using RevTex to prepare your document you can also use the standard way: \usepackage{lineno}

4. Line numbers can be activated by adding the line
\linenumbers
after \begin{document}

Thanks! Any idea how to get the lineno package to put the line numbers always on the outside margin in two-column mode?

Margin switching is possible in lineno by using the \switchlinenumbers command for the outer margins and \switchlinenumbers* for the inner margins.

For more information, please see section 4.2.1 of the lineno users manual which can be found at:

It’s working for me this way except that a paragraph that includes an equation is not numbered. Any clue why?

Thanks for this workaround.

It works for me, but when I add the line before the documentclass-command, on the first page a “1.” shows up before the title line.

How can I get rid of this “1.”

I cannot get his to work. There is an options clash for the lineno package.

Any suggestions?
