Enabling/Disabling line numbering for headers and footers currently is quite cumbersome. It would be good to have the option on the enable/disable line numbering dialog.
I don't understand. Enabling line numbering is the same for every paragraph style. First turn on line numbering feature (Tools > Line Numbering...) and then enable the particular paragraph style (Header or Footer in this case) to be included in line numbering.
@Owen: So, that's what I meant: disabling (enabling) line numbering for header and footer is hidden inside styles menu, while line numbering dialog is separate.
It would be really nice to have it on one single place. (usability perspective).
OK. Thanks for clearing that up. I have amended the summary to be clearer. If it sounds correct, let me know and I will confirm the report.
Great! Thank you so much!
Btw, Charu has a patch already: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/11730/
Nice - thanks
Added explanation to the 4.4. release notes - but no picture.

Hi, I wanted to add the dialog screenshot to the release notes, but under the Count area the Restart every new page is not correctly aligned, see screenshot. I reopen this one, let me know if I should open a new bug for that. Thanks Sophie

Surely that doesn’t belong to this bug report. But before you open another one, cau you test if it still happens in a newer master build? I committed this  but maybe something else is needed.
I have downloaded the latest code of Libre office and there is no misalignment for me. Everything is coming as per the expectation. I am attaching the screenshot. Kindly have a look at it

Thanks for checking! I’ll add the feature to the release notes.
Oh, now I see you beat me to it, Charu :-) Thanks again.
This bug fix comes with LibreOffice 4.4 (release notes https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/4.4)
Line numbering can now be enabled in a single location, in addition to the already existing per-style method.
See a graphic of the work:
seems not to work in 4.4.0 RC1

In any case with Dutch locale, so I guess only with ENG_US ?
Also note that there is no synchronising between the dialogs, see bug 87549

I don't think this should be specific to a locale except for the UI. Nevertheless this can be checked.

It should be synchronized, except that the dialog considers header/footer, again can be retested.
If this feature is not functional now, it should not be listed in the release notes (https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/4.4) of the coming version 4.4. (release is planned to happen in a few days: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan/4.4)
The status of the bug should also be changed by competent people.

Why is this not functional, please? This should indeed work...

If it works, all is fine. I then misunderstood the communication since Cors comment #14. Sorry

Bug 86984 is MAB and not set as fixed, so indeed, it does not work for other locales than EN_US.. (just checked in 188.8.131.52)
