How can I permanently have line numbers in IntelliJ?

Answers:

IntelliJ 14.X Onwards

From version 14.0 onwards, the path to the setting dialog is slightly different, a General submenu has been added between Editor and Appearance as shown below

enter image description here

IntelliJ 8.1.2 – 13.X

From IntelliJ 8.1.2 onwards, this option is in File | Settings1. Within the IDE Settings section of that dialog, you’ll find it under Editor | Appearance.

  1. On a Mac, these are named IntelliJ IDEA | Preferences…

The question is obviously well answered already, but since IJ 13 you can enable line numbers in 2 seconds flat:

  1. Press shift+shift
  2. Type “line number”
  3. The option shows in the menu and press enter to enable/disable.

Et voila 😉

There’s another way, and even quicker (works for me in version 10.5)

Simply right click on the place where the line-numbers should be, and there you’ll see a small menu.

then, mark the “Show Line Numbers” option.

Please note that this only works on a per-file basis, however. Enjoy.

In Intellij 13 the layout has changed, the Settings button can only be found in File -> Settings and not in the toolbars, and from there you follow the same steps: Editor -> Appearance -> Show line numbers, or search for Line numbers in the Settings search input.Intellij Settings search for line numbers
