Just to confirm - I can turn off line numbers in a previously saved
document (call it "X" here) which is showing its line numbers.
It still shows its line numbers during the current session.
All new files created simply with File/ New will correctly not have
Edit/preferences correctly shows line numbers as un-ticked
I can then Quit TeXworks.
Reopen my document called "X" and it still shows line numbers, but
Edit/preferences still shows line numbers as un-ticked.
File/New documents as expected do not have line numbers.
