changing upper to lower(17 posts)
A huge LOL to Pipo's reply - I caught it only after reading it the second time.
@nottougly - Does Works have a find and replace function? It would take 26 run-throughs to get them all, but that might be quicker than retyping.
@Lighthouse: That program just changes the file name. I think the original poster wants to change text in a Works 8 document.
Of which I have no idea how to do so in Works. I know you can easily do this Microsoft Word. There is a toolbar button to change the case of selected text.
I created a document without looking at the screen and I had hit the caps lock key. I really don't want to re-type it. Half the document is in capital letters. There has to be an easy way to do it. Sometimes I copy and past into a works document that is all caps. I really hope there is an easy way to do it. Why is there a caps lock key anyway? And why put it on the keyboard where one always uses the tab and shift keys?
There has to be a solution to this problem.
Thanks for the input.
i'm sorry, i guess i didn't understand the question the first time. if you have another word processor that has the function that changes upper to lower, you can copy and paste it there to use the function, then copy it back to your original document.
in PSPad, a text editor that i use, there's a function that changes cases. if downloading a text editor is not too bothersome compared to retyping, you can try that.
@nottougly, the answer is easy. Keyboards were made for secretaries and they look on the paper/screen when they type and would catch a locked caps key immediately. It's us 2 finger artists that have the problem.
notougly asks, "Why is there a caps lock key anyway? And why put it on the keyboard where one always uses the tab and shift keys?"
I also am a two fingered typist and never made friends with the Caps Lock key. My life was changed forever when I read this article by The Geek - https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/map-any-key-to-any-key-on-windows-xp-vista/
