    Restore / Add line numbers to text files

    Ubuntu 18.04 updated.
    For some reason my line numbers in my text files have gone away.
    How to restore/add?

    Assuming that you are using gedit:
    Hamburger menu -> Preferences -> View tab -> Display Line Numbers

    Sir,
    You are correct I am using gedit. Have used it for a long time. I have searched all the
    usual places for the "preferences" menu but it is gone. I have no idea about a hamburger
    menu. Where might it be?

    The "hamburger menu" is the top right button with 3 horizontal lines. The setting you're looking for is exactly where's described in the previous comment.
