Dear Libre Office Team,

Can you please add a button in Home tab for changing the case of the paragraph to different cases like Uppercase,lowercase etc.
I know that the option is available in the Home menu but it will be easier when I've to edit bulk data. [https://imgur.com/a/wZAwGsO]

Sounds like a reasonable request, if we can show the options in a dropdown. Up to the NB designer to implement or not.

Or, use the control as Cycle Case (<Shift>+F3)--.uno:ChangeCaseRotateCase--currently available via menu Format -> Text

No icon assigned (nor designed), so think it would be ugly added as a labeled button. But if button icon can be agreed to, sure.

Otherwise, issues of bug 49033 and dupes to resolve first if this is going to be so prominently visible. @Mike K.?

I will do the icon if the command is available now it's not available and that's the reason it was in the home drop down menu on the right.

Not in favour of adding this - way too low of a usage pattern to waste precious space. Plus anyone doing this REALLY needs to learn the keyboard shortcut.
