Transform to Toggled Case not working?

Post by CrisRich58 » 2019-09-13 11:11:49

Hello, when I select a line of words that are all capitalised and formatted as "Heading 1" and then choose the menu command "Transform Text - To Toggled Case" all the letters are transformed into only lowercase.

G'day, CrisRich58 et al

It works OK for me in NWP 3.0.3.

Hello Adrian, thank you for your reply.

I also have version 3.0.3 on a MacBook Pro with macOS 10.14.6

Here is a screen video I made to show what's happening:

Am I doing something wrong?

Best regards,

Cristiano

G'day, Cristiano et al

Ah, you are operating under a misconception regarding case, possibly due to a semantic issue.

The word "capitalize" is ambiguous. In the context of Nisus Writer, a capitalized word is one whose initial letter is uppercase and subsequent letters are lowercase: it is not one with all letters uppercase. Toggling the case of a string of text converts all uppercase letters to lowercase, and all lowercase letters to uppercase.

In the example in your screen video, the selected text is all uppercase, so toggling the case produces a set of characters that are all lowercase. This is the expected behavior.

I suspect that what you want is "capitalized" case, so select the text and choose the To Capitalized command instead of the To Toggled Case command.
