Is There A Way To Convert Uppercase To Lowercase In PDF Documents?

by Yaron Elharar (@YaronElharar)

You got a PDF with important information for your next presentation. The problem? Some of the document is written in uppercase letters, and you need the quickest way to convert selected text to lowercase.

The good news is, changing uppercase to lowercase in a PDF is possible. In this article, we’ll go over different ways to do this, including an easy tool that makes this process much simpler.

This article assumes that the PDF you are working on is already in an editable state, and you can access the text directly, let’s start.

Traditional Solutions: The Tedious Task

Manual Conversion

The most straightforward solution is, of course, manual conversion. This involves going through the document, selecting the text, and retyping it in lowercase. While this method is feasible, it’s hardly practical, especially for lengthy documents.

Copy-Paste into a Word Processor

Another common solution is to copy the text from the PDF and paste it into a word processor like Microsoft word. These platforms often have a feature to change case. However, moving text between those applications can end up disrupting the formatting of your text and is no less time-consuming.

Windows Shortcut (keys to press)Action
Win+Alt+LTo convert selection to lowercase
Win+Alt+UTo convert selection to All Caps (UPPERCASE)
Win+Alt+TTo convert selection to Title Case
Win+Alt+STo convert selection to Sentence case
Win+Alt+ATo convert selection to AlTeRnAtInG CaPs
Win+Alt+OOpens main window with all the app's options
To enable the shortcuts above, you will need the free AnyCase App. Clicking on the table will lead you to its download page.

Going online

Another method involves using online text conversion tools. This process is somewhat similar to using a word processor. First, you’ll need to copy the text from the PDF, then paste it into the online tool. After converting the text to the desired case, you’ll bring it back to your PDF. While this method works, it can be as tedious as the others. Ideally, you would want to accomplish this task locally and directly within the document itself, without the back-and-forth hassle.

The above methods are just possible solutions, but they are manual and require a lot of back and forth to complete, what we need and looking for is a one click solution where you can convert case both fast and directly in place.
