      Hi

       

      I am working on Poem like Book it has Line Numbers as shown below.

       

      pleasant exercise of hope and joy!                                    5
      For mighty were the auxiliars which then stood
      Upon our side, us who were strong in love!
      Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
      But to be young was very Heaven! O times,
      In which the meagre, stale, forbidding ways                     10

      But to be young was very Heaven! O times,

       


      I want to move the Line Number 5 to the Next Line and Continue 10 to the next line and it goes on like below upto 1000 LN

      Is there any script to do this?

       

      Thanks

          First of all, you don't really explain how your text is formatted. Tabs? Tables? Something else?

          Please turn on Show Hidden Characters and include a screenshot.

           

          Next, you don't tell us what the script should do. Does it only move the line numbers down by one line?

          Just for #5? Or all numbers?

           

          How should the script identify a number?

           

          Also...how did this get screwed up, anyhow?

           

          Is this a one-off? Why not just fix it in a text editor that supports rectangular cut and paste regions?

           

           

          Also, I feel like this is related to your other post in the regular forum, from Aug 23, 2011 11:24 AM: Line Numbers.

          I'm not sure if that means you were dissatisfied?
