Capitalization Made Easy
Did you know you can now convert text to all CAPS and even more in a Google Document? I remember how helpful it was for me when I discovered the Google Document Add-on, Change Case. I loved that it would assist me to manipulate text. The possibilities exactly met my needs:
I like that I can use Change Case for acronyms. It is much faster for me to simply enter the letters and then manipulate them to be all uppercase.
For those times that I accidentally left the Caps Lock on and entered half a sentence, I like that I could manipulate the text to Sentence case.
These examples and several other times that Add-on saved me some time, effort, and frustration. It really is the little things isn’t it? Well, if you don’t have the Change Case Add-on and want to have a simple way to manipulate text, I have good news from Google!
The folks at Google have just added a new piece to the Format drop-down box. There is now a Capitalization option right in Google Docs without having an Add-on. In the toolbar, simply select Format > Capitalization and choose the option needed:
- lowercase, to make all the letters in your selection lowercase
- UPPERCASE, to capitalize all the letters in your selection
- Title Case, to capitalize the first letter of each word in your selection
It’s that easy! So, instead of spending time focused upon formatting, you can do more creating, follow your inspirations more, collaborate more.
