The setting would have to be made for each workspace that you have, as there are NO global settings at all. All settings are at the workspace level or lower, ie. at project level within workspaces. But that setting SHOULD have persisted between restarts of Eclipse, or changing to a workspace and then back to a workspace where you had it set.

I removed line numbers and switched to other workpace. I expected to see line numbers not there. But to my surprise i see line numbers there. Not sure my eclipse is behaving weird by not persisting the data across worksapces? please advise

In Eclipse IDE, select “Windows” > “Preference” > “General” > “Editors” > “Text Editors” , check on the “Show line numbers” option

It will reflect all the workspace .

or

Just click code pan (right click) and in the property we get "show line number"..
