Mac Hack: How to turn entire sentence to all caps or all lowercase

I stumbled across this on accident while coding but when I tried to look it up recently, no one seemed to know the shortcut.  Here it is:

For changing a sentence or words to all caps such as this: I CODE IN MY SLEEP

Press: command + shift  + x

For changing a sentence or words to all lowercase such as this: i code in my sleep

Press: command + shift + y


**Disclaimer – this does not work everywhere as certain software programs and web apps have shortcuts built in. Should work in most coding platforms like the Eclipse IDE or Coda (haven’t tried Coda yet).

Do you have any nifty shortcut hacks? Share them with me!
