Okay, so let's say you have some text (a variable, maybe?)



and you need to do some case-changing action on it.  Plus, there is a crazy guy holding several people hostage and threatening to dip them in boiling chocolate unless you do it fast.  What do you do?  No Problem!  You just select the word and press CTRL + SHIFT + U to make it uppercase



or if the evil guy isn't satisfied you can always make it lowercase by pressing CTRL + U



And now you have saved the day!

    Thank you – I was searching everywhere for this tip. I was expecting a toolbar option of "Make Upper" like in previous versions.
