Question Can AbiWord show line and column numbers?

I've seen comments about a "Show line numbers" option under preferences, but I haven't got any "Show" prefs in my v2.4.1.
Does anyone have the option to show line and column numbers in abiword, and if so, what is the version please?

(... and if you happen to know where to download a deb!)

Abiword is a word processor---These do not normally show line numbers. A text editor (like gedit, viM, emacs, etc. will have line numbering)

Abiword is available thru synaptic--I guess it has to be a .deb package to do that...??

Did you Google "abiword deb"?
