Change Case You can hold down the shift key and then whatever letter you type will be uppercase. Or you can press the caps lock button to make every letter you type uppercase. Pressing caps lock will return the case back to normal. If you have caps lock on, then pressing shift while typing a letter will insert a lowercase letter.
cont That’s changing case while you are typing. But you can also change the case of text that has already been typed in your Word document. All you have to do is select the text first, and then go to the Home tab and click the Change Case button in the Font group. The Change Case button looks like this:
When you click the button, you get the following options to choose from: Sentence case – in sentence case, the first word of each sentence has a capital letter and all other words are lowercase. For example, the man went home. the house was empty. empty becomes The man went home. The house was empty. Empty Lowercase – if you choose this option, all letters become lowercase. UPPERCASE – if you choose this option, all letters become uppercase. Capitalise Each Word – this option Capitalises Each Word In The Selected Text. As Demonstrated Here. Toggle Case – choosing this option reverses the case of each letter so that i loVe TO dANcE ThE sLOW foXTroT becomes I LOvE to DanCe tHe Slow FOxtROt.
Find and Replace Text Find text You can quickly search for every occurrence of a specific word or phrase. On the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Find. In the Find what box, type the text that you want to search for. Do one of the following: – To find each instance of a word or phrase, click Find Next. – To find all instances of a specific word or phrase at one time, click Find All, and then click Main Document.
cont Find and replace text You can automatically replace a word or phrase with another — for example, you can replace Acme with Apex. The replacement text uses the same capitalization as the text that it replaces unless you select the Match case check box. For example, if you search for AKA and replace it with Also known as, the result is ALSO KNOWN AS.
cont If the Match case check box is selected, Office Word 2007 searches only for words that match the case of the word or phrase that you typed in the Find what box. For example, if you search for AKA, the result includes AKA but not aka. Note If you don't see the Match case check box on the Replace tab, click More.
cont On the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Replace. Click the Replace tab. In the Find what box, type the text that you want to search for. In the Replace with box, type the replacement text. Do one of the following: – To find the next occurrence of the text, click Find Next. – To replace an occurrence of the text, click Replace. After you click Replace, Office Word 2007 moves to the next occurrence of the text. – To replace all occurrences of the text, click Replace All.
