Highlight text and convert case
« on: November 17, 2006, 11:14:57 AM »
Not sure if anyone has done this but there are times I need to highlight text and convert it quickly to:
lower case
UPPER case
Sentence case
Title Case
Instead of me having to create a Word document, paste the text and then change the case format from within there, is there a quick way I can do this by r-clicking on the highlighted text and choosing one of these options?
Thanks very much.

Clipboard help+spell will let you do these easily once you learn how, and let's you create your own additional formatting rules:.
Other programs/clipboard tools surely do as well.

Thanks Mouser!
Will have a look at the program. Am I actually able to highlight text and r-click on it and convert to the different case options or only ny selecting your icon in the System tray area.
Thanks very much for any help!

with chs, you would select the text, hit the quick pop-up hot key (ctrl+alt+q by default), and get a list of recent clipboard text plus at the bottom some preset text modification entries (which you can customize and add to); select the text transformation you want with a keypress, and the highlighted text will be copied, modified, and pasted back in place.

Also Skrommel's CAPshift will do this for you - but only if the text is in an editable area of the screen.
