Add line numbers using lineno.sty in RevTex 4

  1. Download the lineno Latex package.
  2. Unpack it (unzip and copy all lineno/*.sty files into the directory that contains your Latex document.
  3. In the Latex preamble include the line
    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
    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?
