I'm back in Australia (Adelaide) and the Inventor tour continues! My voice is getting back to normal and the audiences don't have to work nearly so hard to hear me...I was very sad about missing the start of NFL football this past weekend - so imagine my delight when I turned on the TV and found the Packers/Lions game! I was absolutely thrilled...I was also able to catch some of the highlights of the other games. Mind you the game was playing at 6:00am Monday morning since I'm a day ahead of the US but that's fine with me!
So here is your AutoCAD tip for the day...
Changing your text to upper/lower case:
You get a drawing from someone else and they have entered all the text in the wrong case - what a drag! There are two different means of changing your text to another case, depending on what type of text it is. If your text is MTEXT, simply highlight the offending text, right click, and choose Change Case from the shortcut menu followed by a selection of upper or lower case. As an added shortcut, you can also highlight the text and enter Ctrl+Shift+U for upper case, or Ctrl+Shift+L for lower case.
If your text is single-line - you can use the Express Tool TCASE to change it. TCASE is much more powerful and gives you many more options (TCASE also works on MTEXT). The figure below shows you the TCASE dialog and the many different options.
So there is another tip from Down Under!
