This question already has an answer here:

Am looking for an elegant way to include line numbers in my mdframed documents. Unfortunately, the following produces a 85 page docuement with \linenumbers (either before or after the \begin{mdframed}. Document is only 4 pages without the \linenumbers.


  • Am ok with a post processing solution, but was not able to get Jake's solution from Add page and line numbers to a pdf to work. And yes I know that saying "it doesn't work" does not help to figure out what the problem is -- might post a separate question, but thought that using lineno package would be easier.


        \draw [fill=yellow!25] (0,0) rectangle (3,4);

  • @Jubobs: Yeah I saw that question, but that seems more of a method of manually adding line numbers. I need an automated solution. – Peter Grill Apr 5 '13 at 8:54
  • Have you tried recycling some code for line numbering from the algorithm2e package? – jubobs Apr 5 '13 at 9:01
  • @Jubobs: No have not, but sure if that would work, as the solution I need needs to work with TeX's line breaking algorithm, and I think those packages have their own. – Peter Grill Apr 5 '13 at 9:05
