I've got blocks of text in Word 2002 that were typed in ALL CAPS, and I would like to convert them to First Letter Capped, without having to re-type it all from scratch.  Anyone know of a quick way to do this?

    Accepted Solution

    Sure.  Just select the text and go to Format > Change Case.  From there you can choose sentance case, lower case, upper case, title case and toggle case.

    Seelct "Change case" from the format menu.
    Select sentence case and click OK.

    D'oh!  <Feeling very stupid on a Friday morning...>  For some reason I didn't even think to try that, since the "base" text had been created as All Caps.  Was thinking that un-capped ALL CAPS text would still be... ALL CAPS.  That's what I get for thinking.

    Thanks, Dopyii.
