"Shaan, please stop yelling in uppercase text..."
Oh sorry about that.
See that is the problem that I will show you how to prevent.
Sometimes when you exit AutoCAD you still have the CAPS lock on and then go to your email or instant messaging and appear to be shouting, when you are not. Uppercase text typically in email is considered the equivalent of shouting or yelling. You might think that people would notice their uppercase still on, but after hours of working in AutoCAD I think you are honestly text case blind or in a trance.
So, how do I turn on Uppercase text in AutoCAD? I want to type in all caps in AutoCAD only.
There is an "AutoCAPS" option in the Ribbon Text Editor, in the Tools panel. Start the text command or double click some text to edit, and expand the Tools panel to expose the AutoCAPS option.
Now with AutoCAPS enabled your text will be on in AutoCAD only and you wont have to remember to use your keyboard option and inadvertently end up shouting in email to someone. Note the AutoCAPS is only for MTEXT not DTEXT (thanks Ray.)
This common question was identified and a solution sent to me from my Autodesk colleague and good friend Cliff Young of the AutoCAD Test Development team. The AutoCAD Test Development team receives a great deal of bug reports and feedback and some are common and we can point out solutions to help you such as this one. Thank you Cliff!
