Title Case with Articles in Lowercase

Jun 27, 2012 2:21 PM

Is there a script or a way to get true Title Case? Illustrator caps every first letter. Seems word does the same, can't believe that there still is not an option for this.

    they do it like that because it is easier that way (for them).

     

    try this while you wait for a true Title Case feature

    It could be scripted...I'll keep it in mind, I'll add it to the super long ToDo List.

    Hi Mike, here you go, I found a function by a gentleman called John Resig and jumped the line and adapted it to work with illustrator. It doesn't have options to add/delete words, the list is hard coded but it has most of the common words, you can edit it manually if needed.

     

    download titleCase.jsx

     

    Hi Peter...

    sorry I forgot to mention to select your text frames before running (regular Black Arrow selection).

     

    what do you mean?, how would like to run it? with the cursor blinking? or with some text selected?

    Mike, now it works with

     

    textFrame selection(s)

    textFrame.gif

    and textRange selection

    textRange.gif

     

    what is it what you're having problems with? what other scenarios do you have to work with?
