There are several of these in the Edit -> Other menu.

True. Some but not all.

I just took the list from Boxer. I figure the SE development team can quickly sort though the current features vs. deficiencies and take it from there. I just threw the laundry list up against the wall to see what sticks.

Thanks for the info though. It is true that I might not have known about those menu entries. Appreciate your help.

Regards,
Jim

Please add an option under Edit/Other called 'Titleize' to properly capitalize a title/sentence according to these accepted rules:
1. Capitalize the first and the last word.
2. Capitalize nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and subordinate conjunctions.
3. Lowercase articles (a, an, the),coordinating conjunctions, and prepositions.
4. Lowercase the "to" in an infinitive (I want to play guitar).

Interesting. I could use this. It should probably use the selection if there is one or just do the current line otherwise. The hard part is the dictionary. The rest is trivial. Do you know a good dictionary which has info like this? (nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and subordinate conjunctions)

Boxer has something similar to this. It may not cover all of your cases, but close. It has Upper, Lower, Invert, Words, Sentences, and Title. I have used it numerous times through the years. It is handy when you need it. It would be nice to have the same function native in SE.
