Upper Case Alphabet

Is there anyway to set the display fonts to all upper case letters to help these old eyes see better? Thanks

Jack,

Right now that’s not possible.
I made a conscious decision to use lower case letters, because their readability is better (have you ever read license agreements all in upper case? They are almost impossible to read. That's - BTW - the reason why normal printed text in books and newspapers etc uses lower case. Reading speed is significantly faster (see this article, for example: https://www.mity.com.au/blog/writing-readable-content-and-why-all-caps-is-so-hard-to-read).
