I would like to add line numbers to an IEEE paper style.

I have tried using different approaches, however non was successful. For example, when using `\usepackage[switch,columnwise]{lineno}`

there will be line numbers missing when I have equations.

I have produced a sample latex file, could anyone help how to add line numbers to this document.

Thanks

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage[switch,columnwise]{lineno}

## Best Answer

IEEE's

`peerreview`

option doesn't seem to work with`two-column`

option. In which case, the`lineno`

package would do the trick.The

`switch`

option prints the line numbers on the left margin of the left column, and on the right margin of the right column.(Credits for Mico's post for the solution)
