Did you know?

Back in the days of old printing presses, the capital letters were kept in a box that was placed higher, and the box below contained the non-capital letters. Thanks to this tradition we say Upper case (the box above) and Lower case (the box below). True story.


All Lower Case (Ctrl+Shift+L)

Converts all upper case characters in the selection to lower case.

Note: Characters that are not upper case are simply left unchanged.

Example:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheap to rent. They were three and we were two, so I booked one and Tim-booked-two.
Result:
when tim and i to brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheap to rent. they were three and we were two, so i booked one and tim-booked-two.

All Upper Case (Ctrl+Shift+U)

Converts all lower case characters in the selection to upper case.

Note: Characters that are not lower case are simply left unchanged.

Example:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheep to rent. They were three and we were two, so I booked one and Tim-booked-two.
Result:
WHEN TIM AND I TO BRISBANE WENT, WE MET THREE LADIES, CHEEP TO RENT. THEY WERE THREE AND WE WERE TWO, SO I BOOKED ONE AND TIM-BOOKED-TWO.

Case Inversion (Ctrl+Shift+I)

Inverts case of the selected text by changing all lower case characters to upper case and vice versa.

Note: Characters, of which case cannot be determined and inverted, because they do not have their lower case or upper case counterparts, e.g. a comma or a full stop, are simply left unchanged.

Example:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheep to rent. They were three and we were two, so I booked one and Tim-booked-two.
Result:
wHEN tIM AND i TO bRISBANE WENT, WE MET THREE LADIES, CHEEP TO RENT. tHEY WERE THREE AND WE WERE TWO, SO i BOOKED ONE AND tIM-BOOKED-TWO.

Word Capitals (Ctrl+Shift+T)

Converts the first character of every word in the selection to upper case and all other characters to lower case.

Note: All word beginnings are turned upper case by this tool. For converting only the very first word character in the entire selection to upper case, see First Capital tool. For sentence-sensitive conversions, see Up to Sentences tool.

Note: Characters that are neither lower case nor upper case are simply left unchanged.

Example:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheep to rent. They were three and we were two, so I booked one and Tim-booked-two.
Result:
When Tim And I To Brisbane Went, We Met Three Ladies, Cheep To Rent. They Were Three And We Were Two, So I Booked One And Tim-Booked-Two.

First Capital (Ctrl+Shift+M)

Converts the first word character in the selection to upper case and all other characters to lower case.

Note: Only the very first word character is turned upper case by this tool. For converting all word beginnings to upper case, see Word Capitals tool. For sentence-sensitive conversions, see Up to Sentences tool.

Note: Characters that are neither lower case nor upper case are simply left unchanged.

Example:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheep to rent. They were three and we were two, so I booked one and Tim-booked-two.
Result:
When tim and i to brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheep to rent. they were three and we were two, so i booked one and tim-booked-two.

Up to Sentences (Ctrl+Shift+S)

Converts the first character of every sentence in the selection to upper case.

Note: Up to Sentences does not modify any other characters of a sentence, except the first one.

Note: Characters that are not lower case are simply left unchanged even if they are the first in a sentence.

Example:
Alice? who the f... is Alice?
Result:
Alice? Who the f... Is Alice?

Tip: If you want to convert all other characters in a sentence to lower case, you have to use the All Lower Case tool (hotkey Ctrl+Shift+L) first. Only then use the Up to Sentences tool.

Random Case (Alt+Ctrl+Shift+I)

Converts case of the selected text by randomly changing upper case characters to lower case and vice versa.

Note: Characters, of which case cannot be determined and inverted, because they do not have their lower case or upper case counterparts, e.g. a comma or a full stop, are simply left unchanged.

Example:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheep to rent. They were three and we were two, so I booked one and Tim-booked-two.
Result:
WHeN tIm AND I tO BrISBane Went, WE met thREe LAdIEs, cheeP TO rEnt. thEy WEre tHREe aNd We WeRe TWo, so I bookEd One anD TiM-boOKEd-tWo.

Fun Case (Alt+Ctrl+Shift+J)

Converts case of words in the selected text by pseudo-randomly changing upper case characters to lower case and vice versa. The process of changing character case follows a set of fun rules mixed with randomizing functions that generate somewhat alternating character case. The results should (in some way) take after the newspeak of the 20th century.

Note: Characters, of which case cannot be determined and modified, because they do not have their lower case or upper case counterparts, e.g. a comma or a full stop, are simply left unchanged. Also, characters that are not part of words are not modified.

Example:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went, we met three ladies, cheep to rent. They were three and we were two, so I booked one and Tim-booked-two.
Result:
wHeN tIm aNd I To BrIsbaNe wEnt, we mEt ThReE LaDiEs, CHeEP To rEnT. TheY weRe tHrEe AnD We WEre tWo, sO I bOokEd ONe AnD tIm-bOoKeD-TwO.
