Hello,

One thing I could really use, and I'm sure other people could use as well, would be an option to convert all selected text characters in editor window to uppercase and lowercase (i.e., "ddSSS" -> "DDSSS" and "ddSSS" -> "ddsss"), and maybe "toggle" them as well (i.e., "dDwWdD" -> "DdWwDd"). CTRL+[something] hotkeys for these would be in order. I've seen this option in some Corel or MS product, I think.

I absolutely love the "vertical selection" option, and with this option FASMW would officially become the best text editor on earth (no, I mean it; I already use it for every other task). It would help very much with converting my awfully understandardized (?) code (everything is in half_UPPERcase_STR right now). Find and Replace is good, but not always selective enough.

Of course, it's only a suggestion, and thanks for all your work so far.

For when half your variables are labeled
VARIABLENAME_variabletype
and the other half were written at 4 a.m. and turned out as
variablename_VARIABLETYPE

or when you have some conversion table
sometable db "aAbBcCdDeE",0
and your algorithm was written assuming it was
sometable db "AaBbCcDdEe",0
and you don't want to go through your algo again.

Of course, if it were too much trouble I wouldn't program it; only, if it's just a minor mod to a similar uppercase/lowercase feature as I described, then why not. But hey, I'd be grateful for anything.

There was such functionality in DN's editor (though the shortkeys for it were strange), and since fasmw's edit control is based on that editor, it might be not so strange idea to implement it...

it is usefull when combining sources from different places (even own from different age) to make them good looking. also converting tabs to spaces usefull for this. long ago i/ve been using only capital letters (as i accustomed on my old pc where were no small latin letters at all), but later i start to use only small letters as more readable. so, when i wish to insert old mine code into modern i may wish to do mass change of case and aligning. think, other may need it also in same reason.

I would also like to have uppercase/lowercase switch on selected text.
Plus a hotkey that opens command line window in current directory.
