eclipse: printing line numbers

I can easily print from WSAD/Eclipse, but does anyone know how to get it to print the line numbers too--just like it appears when you turn on the line numbering option in the editor options?

I know this post is quite old, but I am new to programming and had this same question and found several answers or solutions that made the process more complicated than necessary, such as an online applet, which didn't work.

I found that a simple copy and paste into Microsoft Word worked best.

  • From the file window in Eclipse, Select All (Ctrl A), Copy (Ctrl C)
  • Open a new blank document in Microsoft Word
  • Paste (Ctrl V) to paste code into the document
  • Click on the Page Layout Tab and select Line Numbers>Continuous

  • This will add continuous line numbers to the left of your code that
    will match the line numbers in Eclipse.

    Now you can print a hard copy of the code with the line numbers
    and syntax color coding, tabs and all, from Microsoft Word.

    Welcome to the Ranch, mamashan canfield!

    Thanks for your answer. Please note that David asked his question almost 8 years ago. He is probably not still waiting for an answer...

    Thanks and yes I do realize that, but the way I found the topic was through a Google Search "print line numbers in eclipse". Since this post did not give a solid solution, even though it is 8 years later, I thought it would be helpful to add a solution for others that might Google the same query.
