I very much appreciate the menu command to change selections to Title Case. But how much better would it be if there were also menu items to change selections to ALLCAPS, Sentence case and lowercase, as well? Add a keyboard shortcut that lets you toggle between these to change the format of a selection and it would be a perfect tool set.

Please consider this easy addition to the MMD Composer experience.

    macOS offers those transformations already -- Edit->Transformations.
    You can use the Keyboard System Preferences to assign keyboard shortcuts
    to (almost) any menu command across the system. So no need to wait on
    me for your suggestion!

    I added the Title Case option because it doesn't exist in macOS (likely
    because it is English-centric, but presumably Apple has the resources to
    do across languages.)

    Thanks Fletcher,

    I have set that up (Title Case, Lower Case and All Caps are available
    options) on keyboard shortcuts. But I'm sure people would find it useful as
    part of the MMC toolset (just to make it overt).

    *Sentence case* in particular is missing from Apple's available format
    options. You have to lowercase everything then apply the capital at the
    title start.

    Really it's not a huge deal but it would be a convenience. And isn't that
    what we want from our tools?

    Still loving MMC. As a professional writer, it is my instrument of choice.
    Keep up the good work.
