Try starting outside the word - ie above if converting to lower-case -
sweeping through the word and finishing outside it. Essentially, it sounds
like you have the 'style' correct but need to make the movement bigger.

Note that once you get the whole word case-change working, doing the same
action but through the first letter rather than the body of the word will
capitalise (or make lower-case) the word.

Sorry - can't help with this one.
