I have not found this enhancement request in our Bugzilla. You can of course create it (how to explain here).

  • Select A2:A8
  • Display the style window (sidebar or F11), select the List Styles

Do the same for the column (select B1:D1) and apply Numbering 2: columns are numbered.

Modify Numbering 2 style▸Options tab▸Number list: select A, B, C, ...
