REM Toggle Case between Upper and Lower REM User Documentation: ' To toggle one character, place the cursor in front of that character, ' and run the macro. It is not necessary to select a single character. ' To toggle one or more characters, select the characters, and run the macro. Sub ToggleCaseUL REM Toggle one character, to the right of the cursor, REM from upper to lower case, or vice versa. ' This operation is its own inverse. Do twice to undo.

REM (1) Replacing the first character of a portion effectively REM moves that character into the previous portion, with REM the previous portion's formatting. REM (Workaround here, insert new, then delete old.) REM (2) insert.String affects the range of all (?) text cursors REM on that text. (Here, oIC changes oCursor range.) REM (3) insert.String moves the visual cursor, too.
