All Caps

Anonymous
Not applicable
There should be a STYLE option in every text settings dialog box that has an All Caps. This would sit right next to Bold, Italics, etc. I'd say 99% of architects work in Capital letters. Every other time I type something in AC I have to erase it and redo it because its in small case. Then when I go to send an email, I am invariably writing in all capital letters.

Imagine never having to use the shift or caps lock keys?

In fact, there should be text styles defined as line style, composite, etc. and the text used would refer to these styles rather than defining the properties in each text box...

The style should of course include : all caps, small caps..., etc.

agreed completely, and i think that should all be part and parcel of a general overhaul of the text editing functions:

I was just about to add that comment about STYLES.

With this we could set up one style for Room Names, another for Leader text, and another for general Notes, etc. Currently you have to use the eyedropper, but if the text is not in the current view or you want to change all the text in the whole PLN file after the fact (e.g. redefine all the leaders of a certain style), you can't do it easily.

Orbit solutions make an add on that converts to all caps and visa versa- it also aligns things.

The addon is a freebie.

The site states that Orbit Accessories works on AC 7 or 8. Has anyone used it on 8.1?

Updating to V8.1 seems to have broken the addon.
If you are using v8.0 ( mac) I can email
