Are you sure that you do not have a mask in the data section of the field - a "U" normally makes this happen.
Yes, positive there is no mask. This wasn't an issue until we upgraded to the 11.5 plugin. And the capitalization only happens after editing an unrelated multiline text field then going back into the other field.
You can set case on a multiline field when in edit mode on the selected text using these key combos
Upper Case = Alt + U
Lower Case = Alt + L
Sentence Case = Alt+ S
Title Case = Alt + C
So you might try one of those combinations to see if it corrects the changed field.
BTW. This issue is being worked on by Oracle Support and Development under BugDB #14751246.
If your field data does not change to uppercase until you tab (or click) through them, that would seem to imply one of the following:
1. The field has a type that requires uppercasing the data. You should go into Studio, open the section and click on the field to check the type. If it says "Uppercase" in the type, then that is what you will get when you tab through it. It may not initially be uppercased depending upon how you mapped the data because not all mapping rules care to look at the field type. Entry will always care when you tab through the field.
2. The field may have a post-edit DAL script that is changing the data. Whatever the script returns will become the data or the script may assign the data specifically.
Both of these are situations that might change the data after the initial mapping just by tabbing through the fields. It would seem unlikely that dropping into edit mode on a MLT field would be the cause, but if it did, then that would be something to send to Support.
