Request for new funtionality: a text button which converts to caps

Idea

It would work like this:

One swipes across some text, hits a button on the Edit controls which pops up a choice:

-turn everything to lower case

-turn everything to upper case

-turn the first letter in each word to a cap

 

Would be very handy.

 

Thanks

I don't know about windows, but on the Mac client (and the Evernote Web client when accessed on a Mac) allows you to:

1) Select text

2) right click on selection

3)Transformations>Upper Case/Lower Case/Capitalize

 

This allows you to convert the selected text to ALL CAPS all lowercase or Title Case.

Scott, none of the Mac stuff works on Windows, BUT as a result of your post, I looked up what was available with right-click.

 

The BEST thing I've found since sliced bread is the ability to REMOVE FORMATTING (Control + Shift + Space).

 

So thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to answer. What a great new trick I've found! :D

Scott, my new discovery helps my wish to change text not one iota. That problem still exists and I hope the En developers are listening.

 

My point was that, in spite of not being helpful for the problem I posed, you solved a different problem by responding.

 

Thanks again.

I agree, it would be nice to have a change case function in Evernote on Windows.

 

For example, the Word has the following funtionality:

Scott - thanks for your thoughts. 

The Mac solution doesn't work on Windows. As others have mentioned, would be so great to have this functionality. Many thanks!

Do a google on "windows convert case" and you will see a number of options.

Did some digging earlier... and it seems those keyboard shortcut options are only for Excel, Word, PowerPoint... basically the Office suite. But no direct Windows keyboard shortcut. Seems like http://convertcase.net/ mentioned above is the most practical and flexible workaround for now.

Yep, as soon as you get your brain empty, you'll be ready for it.  :lol:

(refers to another thread).

 

The AHK solution is already given to you in that link.

So, it would be a quick start.

 

I use Keyboard Maestro on the Mac, very similar to AHK.

It is an incredible tool that will save you boat loads of time.

Like most things, some macros are easy to build, others take time.

But there's lots of examples/solutions already for you on the web.

Haha! Do you see a trend in my posts? Empty my brain... too difficult to learn.  :P

I find Transformations useful in Evernote for Mac. I would really like a keyboard shortcut similar to shift F3 in MS Word.

You can create one by going to:

Mac Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts

There is a workaround for converting to all caps in windows. Its not that accurate but works for my rudimentary needs.

Select the text -> Change text style to any font that has all caps eg Perpetua Titling MT

Hope it helps.
