# Editing - ordered list with letters.

In the question there is a list of options numbered with (a) and (b) and so on. I wanted to put it in a nicer list, but how do you make an ordered list with letters instead of numbers?

If this is not possible, I would suggest that this be made possible.

Edit: I might not have been clear enough: When I edit I want to stay near to the original formatting and wording and change only what I think is needed. I have seen some questions lately where one has to choose between some options (a), (b), (c), and (d), and I just wanted to put that in a list like

1. Option
2. Option
3. Option
4. Option

with (a), (b), (c), (d) instead of 1,2,3,4. But the only way I can figure out how to do it is by making a bullet point list:

• (a) Option
• (b) Option
• (c) Option
• (d) Option

But I don't like the bullets. The question is whether there is a "pre-formatted" way to do this?

• I don't understand. What happens if you just use 1, 2, 3, 4 where the problem has a, b, c, d? Dec 8, 2012 at 6:23
• @Gerry: You have to show there is an order isomorphism between then list, and that's a whole other question...

I don't know whether there is a pre-formatted way, but does

$\quad$(a) Option
$\quad$(b) Option
$\quad$(c) Option
$\quad$(d) Option

look like what you want?

• Yeah, that pretty much is it. I might add a future suggestion tag as well to see if it could be implemented a a nice way. Thanks though for experimenting. Dec 9, 2012 at 19:54
