Description eric.savary 2003-04-20 14:08:24 UTC
Using "Format - Character - Font Effects - Effects - 'Title'":

"example" (lowecase) -- becomes --> "Example" (Ok)

"EXAMPLE" (uppercase) -- remains --> "EXAMPLE"
"ExAmple" (mixed case) -- remains --> "ExAmple"

Expected from the function title case is not:
"format first letter of the word to uppercase"
"format first letter of the word to uppercase AND the rest of the word to

I have noticed this when correcting a word with two initial caps to 
title cawe: it doesn't work, since both letters stay capped up.
Comment 2 frank.meies 2003-05-07 13:58:08 UTC
FME: That means a redefinition of our 'title case attribute'. We
cannot change the current behavior of this attribute, since this would
also affect any old document which uses this attribute. What we need
instead is a new attribute for this. Therefore I'll change the issue
type to 'Enhancement'.

FME->BH: To you for evaluation.
Comment 3 bettina.haberer 2003-10-23 16:44:29 UTC
In my opinion is does not make sense to transform words like e.g.
OpenOffice via title case to Openoffice. In such a case it should keep
the same. Due to the fact that changing the current behaviour means a
changing of existing documents, that function should keep as it is.
