    Not built-in, but, HW, if you have downloaded and installed Devon WordService you have a command for that in your Services under the Pages menu. I think I remember your being advised to use WordService in the past, so you may already have this capability. If not, go to Devon Technologies and download WordService.

     

    Once you get it, you will have to put it in your HD > Library > Services folder and then activate it System Preferences, Keyboard, Keyboard Shortcuts, Services.

     

    Regards,

    HW,

     

    Sorry, I referred to Pages when I meant to say Numbers Menu. You got the point anyway.

    Services are activated in the System Preferences, Keyboard, Keyboard Shortcuts window, not the Numbers Preferences window.

     

    Click the checkbox for each Service you wish to activate.

    When it's time to use the service, you will Select the text and then go to Numbers > Services and choose the one you need. Here's what the menu looks like:

    I haven't used Devonthink. You'll have to fill me in after you check it out.

    You're right, I don't know how this could get much more confusing. It's a good thing you only have to do this once.

     

    Let's just use a pictore:

    HW,

     

    See the second screen shot in my third post from the top. That's a Numbers Screen Shot, showing the Services available for Numbers after adding Devon Wordservice. You will not fine a "Change to lower case" option, but there is "Initial Caps of Sentences". That will get you close enough, I hope.

     

    Note that you must select some text before the service is available. Not a Table, not a Cell, but Text.

     

    Regards,

    Also note that Pages has options for changing the capitalization of text:

    Here are how the selections adjust the text:
