How To Sort Lists In OpenOffice/LibreOffice

Every now and then, I find myself wanting to make a list of items and put them in alphabetical order. So I typed a list of nonsense for this example (lines of letters). Now I want to put this list in Alphabetical order.

Key 1 was already checked, Key type was Alphanumeric, and the other option was Numeric. I kept the Ascending (A to Z) option checked and clicked on OK. The end result:
