Changing the case of selected text

Perform the following steps to change the case of selected text in a document to lowercase, UPPERCASE, or Title Case:

  1. Select the desired text to change the case.

  2. Click on the Case Change icon in the toolbar.

  3. From the drop-down menu, choose the desired format by clicking on either lowercase, UPPERCASE, or Title Case.

The toolbar button will retain the last applied type of case making it simple to apply the same formatting multiple times.

Types of Formats

Currently, there are three types of formats available:

lowercase

The lowercase option changes all the selected characters to lowercase.

UPPERCASE

The UPPERCASE option changes all the selected characters to uppercase.

Title Case

The Title Case option changes anything other than articles, coordinating conjunctions, or short prepositions to capital letters. The default rule set for Title Case is based on Wikipedia Title Case.

Title Case options

Title Case can be customized to create user defined rule sets by using the following options:

casechange_title_case_minors

The casechange_title_case_minors option is used to customize the rules while using Title Case. This option makes it possible to configure what words not to capitalize. All other words not specified by this rule set will be capitalized overriding the default Title Case rule set.

Type: Array

Default value: A rule set based on Wikipedia Title Case

Example: Using casechange_title_case_minors
tinymce.init({
  selector: 'textarea',  // change this value according to your HTML
  plugins: 'casechange',
  toolbar: 'casechange',
  casechange_title_case_minors: [
    'at', 'by', 'in', 'of', 'on', 'up', 'to', 'en', 're', 'vs',
    'but', 'off', 'out', 'via', 'bar', 'mid', 'per', 'pro', 'qua', 'til',
    'from', 'into', 'unto', 'with', 'amid', 'anit', 'atop', 'down', 'less', 'like', 'near', 'over', 'past', 'plus', 'sans', 'save', 'than', 'thru', 'till', 'upon',
    'for', 'and', 'nor', 'but', 'or', 'yet', 'so', 'an', 'a', 'some', 'the'
