    A small twiddle but would save oh so much fury!
    Can't count the times that I merrily type away only to find that capslock has got me in its deathly grip.

    I can copy/paste into my word processor / highli9ght and convert to lowser cae/ copy paste back into forum message.
    Would b e so nice to do this direct in the message box.

    Perhaps those cleverer than me will say this can't be done in the bbcode editor but maybe ... ?

    Oh please god yes!

    I have lost track of the posts I have deleted and retyped because I have accidentally had caps lock on :(

    Very good idea Shanj

    And stop utter newbies from thinking typing in all caps is okay. Liz

    Don't you have MS Word installed?
    Just copy it into Word and select sentence case.

    Besides, how can you type a whole post without noticing caps lock is on?
    Don't you look at the words on the screen as you type them?

    Some of us run on mac's, and yes, we do run office but the mac version.

    Depends on whether you are typing from an email or post. Liz

    My original post -
    I type fast and can often type a line or two before I notice the capslock problem.
    Also I'm THINKING about what I'm saying more than I'm LOOKING at what I'm saying.
    I'm quite afflicted like that. I think a lot.

    So do you look at your keyboard or screen when you type?
