Does anyone know whether or what is the keyboard shortcut for change case in Word 2011 on iMac? Old posts have it as Shift+F3, but that now controls screen view....
I do a lot of document work and a keyboard shortcut would save a lot of time.

Command - Shift - A will switch you back and forward between upper and lower case.

Thanks! Cmmd-Shift-A works to switch lowercase to capital and back.
Is anyone aware of a toggle to go through lower case to all UPPER CASE and Initial Caps for Titles? Its very helpful if you do document work and need to initial cap the first letter of something and save a lot of time. Thanks again.

Try OPTION-COMMAND-C. This rotates through various options from all lower case to ALL CAPITALS to First Letter Only. Otherwise you may consider creating your own macro for the function you need.

First highlight the sentence - for a sentence, you can use Command-left click on your mouse, or highlight with the mouse.

Once the words are highlighted that you want to change, use the Command-Option-C to toggle through the options:

The birds are in their trees,

THE TOAST IS IN THE TOASTER,

And The Poets Are At Their Windows.
