I am having an issue with Indesign..

When a text field is selected then Type > Change Case > Title Case the text becomes all capitalized.

 

There are certain words that are not capitalized in title case: E.g. of, if, to

Indesign's title case is capitalizing all of the words, not gramatically correct.

 

Anyone else having this issue??

 

Thanks

That is the standard behaviour of Title Case.  You have to manually change what you want (un)capitalized. "of", "the", "and", etc. are not always lowercase,  I would imagine that would be hard to program so it is always gramatically correct.

Microsoft Word no longer calls it “Title Case”. Instead, they say, “Capitalize Each Word.” That probably makes more sense for computers.
