Agree. I hope this will be added.

Agree too.

For readability is is nice to use mixed case file- and/or
directory names (not only proper).
What I would like to have on the edit line too is the possibility
to change the case of individual characters.
Not by retyping the individual characters but using the Alt-U
(convert to upper) and Alt-L (convert to lower) as found in the
1Word editor of Xtree.
More users who would like that?
