Hey guys,

Is there a tool that can convert lower case text into uppercase like how there is one in MS word.

Not within AC.

I am sure it could be done with an add-on if someone wanted to make one (I have no idea how).

I have done it within an object that has text by simply looking at each character and then swapping - i.e. if "a" then "A", if "b" then B", etc.

Of course this does not help with regular text in the editor.

If I had to do this, this is how I would do it:
1. Select the Text Block, click into it for editing, then select all and copy it to the Clipboard.
2. Open Word, paste the Text into it.
3. Make the modifications to UPPERCASE there. Select All Text, Copy to Clipboard.
4. Paste Text back into Text Block clicked for editing, overwriting previous instance of text.

The formatting is preserved pretty well.
The size of fonts is not totally correct for me, for example a 3 mm text comes back as 2.96 mm, but this is something I could live with. Or just set it back to 3 mm.

This may also work with OpenOffice and the like, Google Docs, etc. I have not tried those though.
