Input text converts to uppercase

Jan 25, 2011
I have a third-party program Instant Text by TextWare. It accepts typed-in abbreviations and expands them. If I type an abbreviation into TCC, the first two or three characters output from Instant Text are correct, but the rest are converted to uppercase for some reason. If I use Windows DOS box instead of TCC this does not happen. Please advise.

This cannot be a TCC bug. TCC just makes Windows API calls to retrieve keyboard input, and it never changes the case. However, TCC uses different APIs than CMD - TCC gets individual characters, and CMD retrieves a line at a time.

Have you contacted TextWare?
