I mentioned this months ago. There is a need for a button to change the font (uppercase, Capitalize, etc) like Microsoft Office 2010 has.

You can add each of these to the toolbar. Look at Format > Change Case to see, that all of these option exist in AOO.

Nevertheless the wish for a drop-down-list for a toolbar or for the Text panel in the Properties deck of the sidebar is valid.

This is not a duplicate of bug 27894, because there the single items do not exists in the configuration dialog, but here they exists.

IMHO should not be offered by default in toolbar because not so useful.

User can create personal toolbar by:
Tools - Customize... - Toolbars - OpenOffice Writer Toolbars - New...
Add... - Category=Format - Commands=lowercase, UPPERCASE etc.

@Edwin Sharp

I am a kind of computer expert and that procedure is complex, how can you expect a newbie to be able to do it?

AOO is for all levels of users and not only for expert ones.

Easy of use and such is one of the reasons for AOO existing.

No matter how hard we try, it is impossible to satisfy all users.
I don't consider myself expert in computers and I think the procedure in comment 2 is reasonable.
