Uppercase / lowecase switch aided by Wordpad.

I have made this huge script to quickly change between uppercase and lowercase without running any large programs like Word, etc. Mostly it have finished before the great hog (Word) have arisen. I have not tried it on very large documents, but in such cases its better to use Word itself. The script is simple, but large.

This cleans the text for any instances of LARGE letter. I name it UC (Uppercase)

It simply calls the search and replace function in Wordpad. BTW it will not run with notepad.

To use it: please select the text you want to convert before you run it. If you don’t run it from a texteditor, you should leave out the code before the pasting.

Because of the language settings on my OS, its not possible for me to check this script, but it runs perfectly in native mode, and have all similar settings.

The other is just opposite, it removes any instances of SMALL letters:

AW: lc (lowercase)


If you have a slow or fast PC, just play around with the <DELAY>times.

    Hi Ronald,

    Have you considered looking at Text Monkey? It's a utility published by the author of Boxer Text Editor, David Hamel, and it allows you to manipulate text copied to the clipboard. You can perform search and replace, uppercase/lowercase, sort lines, number lines, remove duplicates and dozens of other useful text operations.

    You can find Text Monkey here:

    I have found that Text Monkey perfectly complements ActiveWords scripting, so do give it a go. I'm sure your conversion script will become much smaller and easier to manage.

    Don't hesitate to contact me on the ActiveWords forum with any comments.

    With the best of regards,

    Marjolein Hoekstra

Remember that ActiveWords "types out" the scripts. Often a single space in the wrong place can cause the script to "misfire"
