Capitalize iptc variables
« on: May 19, 2015, 10:44:20 AM »
This is a request for a feature that I don't think exists.

I have to include datelines in my captions like this:
STATE NAME, STATE - MONTH DATE: (In all caps)
I would very much like to have {city}, {state} - {iptcmonth} {iday}:, but the style is to have the dateline be in all caps, where the locations and month are just capitalized. Is there a way to add {citycap}, {statecap} and {iptcmonthcap} to have all caps versions of those variables?

Thanks

String functions lc, UC and PC may provide the case conversion(s) you need. Try {city:UC} , {city:0:UC} and {city:3:UC} just to see what the upper case function can do for you.

Here is the documentation for the feature you've requested:
