Is it possible to convert from Lower Case to Proper Case in Mapublisher 8 without the data being "tied" to the original through an expression? I'd like to be able to make "independent" edits.

There isn't much info in the MP 8 documentation on using functions.

Is it possible to convert from Lower Case to Proper Case in Mapublisher 8 without creating a new expression based column? I don't like that the new column is "tied" to the original. I'd like to be able to make "independent" edits.

Hi! If you do not like to have the new column "editable", try to use "Apply Expression". (I assume that 1) you created a new field in the attribute table, 2) used the "Derived from expression" option in the Edit Schema dialog. If the values are derived from expression via the Edit schema window, it is a read only property (so that it looks like the new field is "tied" to the original field). If you create a new field, then use Apply Expression (the button is located at the bottom of MAP Attribute palette), you can edit the value and the value is not depend on the original field :)

I hope this helps!!

Happy mapping!
