Microsoft Word/small caps


Hello,in my last correspondence I said thank you to acknowledge the help that you gave me just before that message   I SHOULD HAVE DONE BETTER

iS THERE A WAY to convert with the computer say small caps or big caps to ordinary communication language. I guess i mean the type that I have I USED HERe


If the Small Caps or All Caps property has been applied to text as direct formatting (not part of the style), you can select the text and press Ctrl+Spacebar to remove this formatting. The underlying formatting may be all lowercase or some mixture of caps and lowercase.

If text has been typed in capitals using Caps Lock (or if removing All Caps or Small Caps does not yield the desired capitalization), then you need to use the Change Case feature. If you select the text and press Shift+F3 repeatedly, you can cycle through a selection of other case settings; if the three offered don't include the one you want, you can use the Change Case button in the Font group on the Home tab to display all the options.

I've been using Word for Windows since version 2.0 (1992), and the more I learn about it, the more I realize how little I know. But I may know a few things that you don't, and I'll help if I can. I answer many questions every day in Microsoft's peer support forums and as a result have been awarded the MVP (Most Valuable Professional) designation by Microsoft Corporation. You may be able to find the answer to your question at the Word MVPs' FAQ site or at my own Word FAQ site, so please check those first! Please, no questions about VBA (macros), Registry editing, networks, or complex merges, as I have no experience with these aspects of Word, nor do I have any experience with Word for Mac. Please indicate which version of Word you are using; if you are not sure, see "What version of Word do I have?".


I have a master's degree in classics (Latin), which is surprisingly helpful, though I no longer teach. The things I am proudest of: Having raised two children to maturity, both Merit Scholars, both college graduates (one a philosophy major!), one Phi Beta Kappa (from Harvard!); having been made a Paul Harris Fellow by my Rotary club; having been designated a Microsoft MVP.
