I notice that there is a different contextual menu for text titles than there is for text on a Scrivener text page. One thing I have become used to is making use of the "Transformation" selection in the standard (Apple) contextual menu. This allows the selected text to become capitalized, lowercase, or upper case.

As I assemble my previous notes I will occasionally make a section title capitalized. The only way I can do this now is to put that line in the name of the note, use Transformation in that contextual menu to capitalize it, and copy and paste the now capitalized name back into the text document.

I would like to see this in some way put in the Scrivener text contextual menu so that I can change case on selected text in just one step.

There's no need to copy and paste. You can select the text you want to transform, and use the main Edit menu: Edit > Transformations > [choose the transformation you want.] If you use this often, you can set up some keyboard shortcuts in the System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts pane.
