Change case of letters to Title Case within a Paragraph Style

I have typeset a book that has many titles. The titles are all in SENTENCE CASE ie first letter of title in in caps, the rest are all lowercase. I have set a style for the titles. Individually it is possible to change each title to TITLE CASE by rightclicking and changing the case to TITLE CASE.

Is it possible to change this through the paragraph style so that I dod not have to manually go through each title and change it?

Unfortunately not.

It is a feature request since 2017 (at least).

See Adobe InDesign UserVoice

There are many scripts that can do this. For example:

Hi @tully1254 
I hope this helps.

var myDoc = app.activeDocument;

app.findTextPreferences = app.changeTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

app.findTextPreferences.appliedParagraphStyle = "Subhd";// Please change your style name 
  
var myFinds = myDoc.findText();

for (var i = 0; i < myFinds.length; i++) {

   myFinds[i].texts[0].changecase(ChangeCaseOptions.UPPERCASE);

  }	

app.findTextPreferences = app.changeTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
Thanks,
Prabu
