The Gmail composer appears to only offer numbered and bulleted lists. Shortcuts:

  • Ctrl+Shift+7 for a numbered list
  • Ctrl+Shift+8 for a bulleted list

Is there a straightforward way to create an ordered list that uses letters instead of numbers? I.e.,

A. First item
B. Second item

instead of

1. First item
2. Second item

When I want specific formatting (such as tables), I write the email in Word first then paste it in Gmail. I tried it with your example of lettered bullets and it worked well. I haven't found another option directly in Gmail unless there is an extension that gives more formatting options.
