In PC Word I can change the case of a word by pressing Shift-F3. Is there a similar shortcut (not Shift-F3 which does other things) in Mac Word?

I run OS 9.2.2 and Word 2001.
Nearly all key commands, drop-down menus, and tool ribbons & bars can be altered to your specifications. I am not certain that COMMAND-K is Microsoft's key command or my own. It's what I use. The command keys allow me to toggle lower case>>Initial Cap>>ALL CAP>>lower case.
In my tricked out version of Word, I have CUSTOMIZE menu in TOOLS drop-down menu. If you have access to the out-of-print Microsoft Word User's Guide (document # WB60460-0794) you will find it invaluable for learning to make Word sing.
Hope this helps.

In Word 2003 for Mac (don't know about other versions), to see what the "change case" shortcut is, go to:
TOOLS> CUSTOMIZE> CUSTOMIZE KEYBOARD> FORMAT> CHANGE CASE
(mine is command+option+C)

or just to see what your "all caps" shortcut is, go to
TOOLS> CUSTOMIZE> CUSTOMIZE KEYBOARD> FORMAT> ALL CAPS
(mine is command+shift+A)

you can see all keyboard shortcuts or create your own shortcuts by going to
TOOLS> CUSTOMIZE> CUSTOMIZE KEYBOARD

in the menu view then customize toolbars you can select format (on the left column) or all commands, and look for change case. drag this command to a tool bar. when you click it, the selected text in your doc will cycle though the cases. unfortunately, for some reason, title case does not alway show, so you would at those times have to go to the actual menu and choose change case.

if you have an office 2000 version, I posted a macro for it and others a while back. i can also send it to you. but the new office does not have macros. aint progress great. it could be worse, if you have seen the good awful ribbon in office for PCs
