In Google Docs, I would like to have a numbered list using Cyrillic letters, such as:


The regular choices for numbered lists offer the options of Arabic numerals, Latin lowercase, Latin uppercase, Latin lowercase numerals, or Latin uppercase numerals. I can make it a bulleted list and select an arbitrary symbol for each bullet point, thus manually selection абвгд, etc., but this is cumbersome and error-prone. How can I automatically have a numbered list that is enumerated using (lowercase) Cyrillic letters?

There's a similar question about Hebrew letters on the Google Support forum, but it is from 2014 and unanswered; wisdom of the ancients it is...

  • Why the google-apps-script tag was included? If you are looking to do this with Google Apps Script please add a brief description of your attempts to write the script by yourself or to adapt something that you found.

  • @Rubén I did not add this tag, user0 did so in their edit, I don't know why. I don't know anything about google apps scripts and I am preferably looking for a solution that already exists.

  • Have you already tried to change the document language to one that use the Cyrillic alphabet and to change your account language to one of them?

  • @Rubén I think the document language is already Russian (spell-check is Russian). I did not try to change my Google Account language to Russian and I really don't want to do that (I could try to see if it would work, but as a solution it would not be satisfactory to me).

    Have you already take a look to Russian Language? I don't know if using word processors from american companies in Russian is on topic there, but maybe you could find other guys facing the same problem there and with a lot of luck having one of them to come here and share their findings.
