It’s been a long-standing feature but apparently many people don’t realise: if you’ve got a block of text in Word that’s all caps, you can use Shift-F3 to cycle between all caps, all lowercase and all initial caps.You can also access caps-changing features using the Change Case button on the ribbon in Word 2007 and Word 2010, but the Shift-F3 version works at least as far back as Word 95. I mentioned this in passing in response to a Gizmodo query the other day and got a frankly ecstatic response, so I figure it’s worth sharing with anyone who hasn’t already encountered it.
