This is a repeat report of an existing bug.

SHIFT-F3 is used to toggle capitalization of selected text.  This feature is very useful for screenwriting and other tasks.  A recent release changed this function so that the entire sentence is affected rather than just the selected text.  The newest release still does this.

I've seen the ongoing debate about this functionality in LO.  However it's my opinion that when a user selects text in a software program, any subsequent operations should ONLY affect that selection.  If I want the entire sentence changed, the user will select the entire sentence.


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Type a sentence with varying capitalization, such as "My favorite NFL team is the Arizona Cardinals."
2. Select "Arizona Cardinals" text.
3. Type SHIFT-F3 multiple times.

Actual Results:
Along with "Arizona Cardinals", the unselected text NFL is changed to lower case.

Expected Results:
Only the text "Arizona Cardinals" should be affected.

Reproducible: Always
