I have a document with multiple numbered ordered lists throughout [1, 2, 3...]

But I need to change the list styles to a different type of list -- for example [A, B, C...].

A visual example of what I want to do:

List type conversion in Google Docs example

Aside from manually highlighting each list and then manually tapping the Ordered Lists drop-down arrow and choosing a different list type, is there any way I can simply tell the document to change ALL lists to this type?

Obviously I can't just select all text and de-listify then re-listify them as it will make the entire document one giant list. I think I'm pretty much stuck here. I'm guessing a different app would do this but as I'm already stuck working on many of these in Google Docs I'd prefer a Docs solution. Thank you.
