Macro of function to capitalize all words in selection
Is this even possible with Notepad++??
You could record the following Replace-All action in a macro.
Open the Replace dialog (ctrl+h) and set up the following:
Search mode: Regular expression
In-selection checkbox: Ticked
(…start macro recording here…)
Action: Press the Replace All button
(…end macro recording here…test/save/name/playback your macro…)
Or maybe just Alt+U ? (Edit->Convert Case to->Proper Case)
What version is that in?
Am I using Notepad++ v6.9.2
and alt +U (Edit->Convert Case to->Proper Case) is not available.
Only Upper and Lower cases are there.
Haha…yea, that’s the better option…must be that someone is making me think every problem is best solved with regex. :)
if I correctly researched then the commit was made on the 30 Jun 2016 which means
the next version was 7.0.
Yes Scott, looked like you were in the regex mood :-D
But don’t be afraid, happens to me also too often - trying to solve something
with python script just to find out that it is builtin :-D
Will the macro remember the In-selection checkbox: Ticked?
I’d hate to re-run and have it replace everything :)
Well…I hope you didn’t ignore @Claudia-Frank 's suggestion because it is easier (and thus better) than my original solution. That being said, I have these comments:
Comment #1: With the regular expression replacement solution, the macro WILL remember the In selection setting. When you run the macro and you have nothing selected, nothing will happen.
Comment #2: With @Claudia-Frank 's solution, if there is nothing selected, the convert-case command will do nothing when run from a macro, and isn’t even selectable via the menus when using the command interactively.
Thus, neither way of doing it is like some other Notepad++ commands that run on the whole file if there is no active selection.
Thanks for the info.
I updated Notepad++ to v7.5.1 and now I have lots of options! :)
Sorry it took so long to reply…
Have to wait 20 minutes between posts because I’m new with no reputation. :)
