Turning Capitals into lowercase (starting with uppercase character)

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to achieve this?

Example: Turning BLAUKRAUT BLEIBT BLAUKRAUT into Blaukraut bleibt Blaukraut.

I have hundreds of lines in several PDF files and I am too lazy to write the text all anew. I know there are converters on the net, but I would like to do this in APu.

TIA

I have no problems others seeing me what I (really) am. ;)

Edit: To make a complete fool of me - is it even possible to make Capitalisation part of a Character or Paragraph style?

Another bizarre question ...

In haven't tried recently, but my memory is that this only works before there's a reply to that post. After there's a reply I thought only moderators could hide the topic.

There is Capitals section in Text Style settings which capitalizes and more very nicely. As in InDesign, it cannot make all caps text lower case, but it can make text appearance (instance) from lower case to all caps (and more). This is very useful as you can use text variables to copy text and it can be lower case (like in header part) even when the headline part is all caps. (OK, I do not know if text variables has been applied in Publisher that far yet).

BTW, change case function cannot know which words should start with cap and which not so german will need some manual care anyway...
