Invalid text capitalization

Hi, I have some problem with text capitalization. In attached document you can see that whole paragraph is in upper case, but when I iterate through that paragraph and prints text, it prints some of them in lower case. Here is code for test:

InputStream inputStream = getClass().getClassLoader()

Document document = new Document(inputStream);

Section section = document.getFirstSection();

Body body = section.getBody();

Paragraphs paragraphs = body.getParagraphs();

Paragraph paragraph = paragraphs.get(16);

Runs runs = paragraph.getRuns();

for (int i = 0; i < runs.getCount(); i++) {
System.out.println("Index: " + i + " run text: " + runs.get(i).getText()); //second run is in lowercase

Thanks, Ivica.

Hi<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your request. This occurs because AllCaps is set to true. You can try using the following code.

for (int i = 0; i < paragraph.getRuns().getCount(); i++) {

String text = paragraph.getRuns().get(i).getText();


text = text.toUpperCase();

System.out.println("Index: " + i + " run text: " + text);


Best regards.

Ok, but allCaps on first run is set to false and all text in it is in upper case. Can you explain to me a way this is functioning little more detailed.

Thanks, Ivica.

Thanks for your inquiry. You can write text in Upper case ( Press CapsLock and write text). Also you can write regular text (in lower case) then select this text, right click and select Font, then set checkbox “All caps”.

Best regards.
