    ... but can i ask you this?

    once installed is this going to let me change something that is in ALL CAPS LIKE THIS to lower case or is it only going to change the first letter of each word in cases where the words themselves are capitalized...?

    thank you

    As I noted in my last post, there is an option for Initial cap of Sentence. I'm intentionally talking around the obvious solution for a spreadsheet app, the use of a Function. If your all-upper case string is in A, you can write:

     

    =LOWER(A)

     

    to get the same text in all lower case. To turn that from the result of an Expression in a Cell to straight text, Command-C then Edit > Paste Values.

     

    I think we already covered that, but just in case it slipped between the cracks, I've repeated it.

    Hi HW,

     

    "there is a pulldown menu in Pages to do this"

     

    The menu items, found in the Format menu, change only the format in which the underlying text is displayed.

    The functions UPPER() and LOWER() replace the text with its UPPER or LOWER case equivalent.

    Lower, part of Devon Word Service, tested in Pages, also replaces the text.

     

    Regards,

    Barry
