format Final Draft 12 - odd problem with capitalization

I recently upgraded to Final Draft 12 and am having an odd problem - I'm wondering if it's happened to anyone else here. And if so, how did you fix it?

I'm editing a screenplay, and when I revise the first line of a character's dialogue, FD 12 insists on putting the words in ALL CAPS, as if it were part of the character's name. Even if I try the "toggle case" function, it still says all caps.

My laptop is pretty new, so I don't think that's the issue. And that's actually the only reason I upgraded - because I was starting over with a new laptop after I (literally) spilled milk on the old one.

There is an "ALL CAPS" setting under Format/Elements Settings. Look at the dialog element ,Font tab and click on the "Set Font..." button. See if it's set to ALL CAPS for dialog.
