Request: Option to use letters instead of numbers in menu

In the original Wasteland, when navigating the menu you pressed the first letter of the command instead of a number.

For example, when in combat, the menu would look something like this:
(R)un
(U)se
(H)ire
(E)vade
(A)ttack
(W)eapon
(L)oad/Unjam

Instead of:
1) Run
2) Use
3) Hire
4) Evade
5) Attack
6) Weapon
7) Load/Unjam

I've been playing Wasteland for 32 years, so the muscle memory of wanting to press the first letter of a command always comes first. It feels awkward, at least to me, to use a number.

At least make it an option in the menu to toggle between alpha and numeric menu commands- that would be nice.

You can already do this. At least on PC Steam. I've been doing it without thinking about it. :)

Alright, dumb question, then... how can I do this? :oops:

EDIT: Ok, I'm an idiot. Just tried Run and Evade in combat, and it works. I feel much better now. Thanks for the help!
