Change Text From Lower To Upper Case and More
(MS Word And Open Office Writer And Calc)
The shift key and the Caps Lock keys on the key board allow the changing of case of text as a document is being typed.
On an already typed piece of text there are other options.
MS Word – In an MS Word document a quick way to change text from lower case to capitals or first letter capital is to use the combination SHIFT and F3. With a word or words or a block of text on a page highlighted, each time you hit the SHIFT followed by the F3 key, the text formation will cycle through Lowercase, Capitals and then First Letter Capital. There is also a way to make changes under Format > Change Case which opens a Change Case Window with options there with radio buttons for – Sentence case, lowercase, UPPERCASE, Title Case, and tOGGLE cASE.
Open Office – Open Office has a capability through Format > Change Case. Here the options are – Sentence Case, lower case, UPPER CASE, Capitalize every word, tOGGLE cASE. If Open Office is ‘Enabled for Asian Languages’ there will be additional options available.
Icons for changes to Uppercase and Lowercase can be added to visible buttons on the Formatting tool bar to be used on highlighted text. This can be used both in Open Office Writer and Calc documents.
