Can you make shift to shift case?

    Pet Peeve.

    years ago when i had a pc, it was so nice to be able to put caps lock on and then shift down (useful when filling out forms etc.)

    EX: caps lock ON and you want to type McMURRAY or something like that.

    if caps lock is on, you have to un-cap to type one letter and then re-cap to finish.

    I want the shift key to SHIFT CASE whether it be up or down.

    is there a way to do that? or is it something really simple i've been overlooking for years? i've looked at a couple keyboard mapping apps, but i can't find one to solve this issue.

    I'd like to know this too. I've got used to it, but it would be nice to have a solution in case someone else I know finds it annoying.

    Sorry, but I've never heard of any way to invert the Shift key functionality when caps lock is on.

    Actually it's a pet peeve of mine also - except regarding the PC behavior. Years and years of time spent as a developer on PC (like back to DOS era through latest dev environment for Windows) and it would drive me crazy when the caps lock was on and I hit the Shift key - INVERTING the functionality of Shift - creating lower-case. One of the dumbest and least intuitive things I ever saw a PC do. Bad enough for normal typing, but when coding most naming is done with leading caps(no spaces, like: "PleaseFixTheShiftLock").

    (the dumbest being the error BIOS gives when a keyboard is disconnected "Keyboard not found. Press any key to continue.")

    Gotta love the keyboard error - I have seen it way too many times
