Change capitalization based on the typed abbreviation

PhraseExpander can automatically adapt the expanded template (or autocorrect) based on how you are typing the abbreviation.

So, you can define a template with lowercase content and adapt it automatically (setting it to uppercasesentence case or title case), just by typing the same abbreviation with a different casing.

Let's consider this template and let's see how the output that PhraseExpander generates changes based on the typed abbreviation.

NOTE: For title casing to work, the abbreviation must have at least 3 letters and they must be typed as a  lowercase, uppercase, lowercase sequence. The title case works only with phrases (it doesn't work with autocorrects).
