More generally, if you're happy playing around a little, and know something about a scripting language, then  "Text => Filter through command..."  has a heap of power. For example, entering

   perl -pe 's/^/sprintf("%2d ",$.)/e'

does what you're seeking.

Hi, if the task only is to insert numbers from 1 to x then you can play maybe with the function "Bundles > Text > Add Line Numbers to Selection" which simply applies the Bash commands "cat -n|expand -8" to the selection or the entire document.
