In most word processors, you can easily toggle many text styles. For example:
- Ctrl + B - Will bold or un-bold selected text.
- Ctrl + U - Will underline or un-underline selected text.
- Ctrl + I - Will italicize or un-italicize selected text.
With Caps Lock, however, it is not a toggle function. Unless the program has a feature to convert the text one way or the other, the text must be deleted, Caps Lock hit, then retyped. This seems like part of the reason the Caps Lock seems so useless; because it is not easy to use. And how about that scenario where you hit Shift in the middle of a sentence for a name or something, but accidentally hit Caps Lock too? Then you don't notice until your wORK LOOKS LIKE THIS. nOW YOU HAVE TO DELETE THE WHOLE THING.
Why is Caps Lock not a toggle key, in this respect? Should it be?
