TYPED A WHOLE EMAIL AND IT didn't fix itself... I noticed the feature in other
wordprocessers... Do you think it would be a good idea?

MRU->SBA: do we already have this in our Tools.Atocorrect dialog?
Comment 2 stefan.baltzer 2006-03-02 16:17:33 UTC
SBA: At times there is no feature to "toggle the capitalisation of a selection".
The Workaround is to 
 - select the respective text
 - (via context menu / right mouse button) select Case/Charactes -> Lowercase
 - (via menu) Format - Change Case ->  Lowercase

-> Now all text is in lower case so that only the desired capital letters must
be corrected manually. I think that this is a reasonable request because this
kind of error is very common.
Reassigned to requirements.

I've just implemented this in ooo-build.  It works in all four applications not
just in Writer.

Currently, this functionality works on UNIX and Windows.  To get this to work on
Mac, someone has to implement the platform specific part to query the state of
the locks key (caps, num, and scroll) and to fake-press these keys.

There is a small problem with its functionality, at least in Linux. 
It is well stated in Issue # 96915 , 
which should not have been closed.

It is about changing typing without changing caps light.

I comment there a possible solution to it.

Linux openSuSE 11.1, kernel, xorg 1.5.2 (rel 2008-10-10) 
on a Toshiba A200 notebook, Intel P4 core 2 duo, 2GHz, 2GB mem.
Comment 13 kyoshida 2009-01-11 15:29:33 UTC
@m_gr_01: Yes, this is a known issue on Linux because has slightly changed
its implementation around LED light handling.

But Windows is not affected.

I'm awaiting the next version to be released to see if it fixes the issue

Java test code does not really help sine OOo is written in C/C++, and this is
strictly an issue with
