Case 1The Change Case command (SHIFT+F3) does not change to Title Case when either of the following conditions is true:
Case 2The Change Case command does not change to Sentence case when either of the following conditions is true:
The Change Case command does not change a complete sentence to Title Case. Similarly, the Change Case command assumes that a non-sentence selection is never formatted for Sentence case. The command determines whether the selection is a sentence by checking for end-of-sentence punctuation. This feature is by design of the SHIFT+F3 key combination for the Change Case command.
The Change Case command changes selected characters to all uppercase letters, all lowercase letters, or a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters. The Change Case command affects character capitalization but not character formatting, such as Small Caps or All Caps. For example, if you apply Title case to text that already has Small Caps format, the first letter of each word becomes an uppercase letter, and the rest of the characters retain the Small Caps format.
NOTE: You cannot use SHIFT+F3 to change the case of your selected text to tOGGLE cASE. You must click Change Case on the Format menu, click to select tOGGLE cASE, and then click OK.
