Basic Text Transform: all caps, all lowercase

Add basic text transform like there is in Illustrator to make it easier and faster for developers to code your designs. Our developers have to waist time retyping text for layouts that have already been designed. At least basic uppercase and lowercase.

Hi everyone,

I’m glad to announce that the text uppercase, lowercase and title case transformations are now available with the XD 19 release.

Pro Tip: You can apply the transformations to characters styles and make global updates across the document.

Enjoy and let us know your feedback!

Best,
Dan

    With the next update please… :) The current plugin "Change Case" is not working cool in combination with design specs for developers! :(

    and create fractions!!! please - or at least make it easy to import fractions created in Illustrator or Indesign

    I'd like a button that allows me to change the case of a title / sentance from lowercase to uppercase and vice versa. Similar to the option available in Illustrator and InDesign.

    This would allow me to quickly change the format and style of the text I use on prototype designs for web and apps. It would also save a lot of time as currently everything has to be re-typed in the preffered format.

    To UpperCase = HOLD (Shift + F3)
    To LowerCase = HOLD (Shift + Alt + F3)
    To Capitalise = HOLD (LowerCase) TWICE

    Hope it helps you all :)

    For those who need this feature ASAP as it's just pain to do things in UpperCase till this feature gets implemented which might take Adobe quite some time, so up until then I would suggest using this method that I pretty much use it in every software, not only it's easier but also quicker to transform texts to however I like without needing to clicking a single button...

    My simple solution for you all is to (simply highlight the desired text and hold Shift + F3) and this would do the trick!

    Very essential and its sad this basic feature isn't there yet, considering I generally love Adobe XD.

    To people mentioning the plug-ins: Thank you for informing us, but please don't encourage the usage as a absolute replacement. In my opinion plug-ins should add nice-to-have features, not stand in for filling in a feature that is basic and common in most layout applications, including nearly all Adobe apps.

    @Deep @Andrew
    Oops, I'm sorry – I got the plugins mixed up !
    Ink and Change Case are the better ones (and I prefer the latter).
    Text Toolbox is the less capable one.

    @Deep @Andrew

    Shift F3 is even quite impossible to invoke on a Mac. On most Mac models, these 'lower' F-keys are assigned to system features, so an application is not supposed to address them.

    The plugins are super easy to install, and try, and get rid off again. Text Toolbox and Ink are currently capable of changing cases (and back) of a whole text frame, but not of any selected text within a text frame. The Change Case plugin offers just a one-way ticket – it can't revert any capitalised text back to lower case.
