Is there a way to convert a block of text to title case in Notepad++?

It should turn

asdf ASDF aSdF

into

Asdf Asdf Asdf

I see upper case and lower case on the edit menu, but those aren't quite what I'm looking for.

The TextFX plugin has this feature, they call it "Proper Case". You can find it under TextFX -> TextFX Characters -> Proper Case:

alt text

Does this have a Hotkey? –  Homer Mar 26 '14 at 18:33

@Homer - you can assign one in Plugin Commands section of Shortcut Mapper. Item Proper case is present there, waiting for you :) –  miroxlav Apr 20 '14 at 0:00

One thing to keep in mind with this. The TextFX plug-in is only in the ANSI version. You will need to download the ZIP file and copy the contents of the ANSI directory to your computer. For some reason, the .exe only installs the unicode without a few key plug-ings.

If you can't install the TextFX plug in you can create a macro that does something very close:

Place your cursor near a word, and click the red dot on the tool bar, or Macro>Start Recording.

  1. Use the ctrl+shift+ (left arrow key), to select the whole word

  2. Make it lowercase (ctrl+u).

  3. Press to go to the front of the word.

  4. Highlight the first letter (using shift+ once)

  5. Uppercase that, (ctrl+shift+u).

Press the black square, or go to Macro>Stop Recording. In the same section on the tool bar you should see a button with a floppy disk on it (alternatively there is an option in the macro menu). Press that and assign a hot key, I use ctrl+shift+alt+u.
