Numbering column to automatically




I can't see the option to insert the numbering column to automatically.

I am using version 6.12.2 and it was implemented in 5.8

I already found it. It seems that they changed the icon and now it is a little less intuitive.

The old one was better. I also missed it.

*Doc set to Fixed width...

While I see and use the insert numbering column icon I am having some trouble with the display of it.  I have added this column to an already completed doc of 232 lines and the number is added correctly and is shown properly in the header and scrolls like it should with the rest of the header.


1) for some reason no matter where I try to insert the numbered column it always ends up in column 1.

2) when the number column is more than one digit, the number wraps as though the coulm width is =1.  As noted above ,I am in fixed width" and I am able to stretch any other column to the width I desire, but not this one.  

Any thoughts?

Can someone please post a screenshot of what it looks like now? I'm also unable to find how to create a numbering column. Thx.

Never mind, I found it in another question. It's the third icon on the right:
