Switching to all caps on XTM?
Thread poster: pcs_MCIL

is there a way to switch the text to all caps/all lower case on XTM?
When I hit the usual SHIFT+F3 nothing happens and i need to copy-paste the letters from the char map, which is pretty time consuming.

Also, I am using a Mac, which provides a standard option to write capital letters with accents, but the keystroke doesn't work in XTM.

Use Word? Jul 4, 2013

Could you copy and paste everything into Word, change the text to capitals, and paste back?


yes Jul 4, 2013

that's what I am doing, but a CAT is supposed to help me translate, not to make simple things complicated!

We've already received messages from our users that option/keyboard shortcut which would allow changing selected text to lower case or upper case would be very useful.

We've added such feature to our roadmap and it will be implemented in one of the future versions of XTM. Unfortunately at the moment there is no such option.

Kind regards,
