There's a number of other non-capitalized primary buttons in media modal:

  • Insert into post
  • Create a new gallery
  • Create a new playlist
  • Create a new video playlist

As well as in other parts of WordPress:

  • I understand
  • Restore image
  • Go back
  • Take over
  • Back to theme sources

Most of primary buttons are indeed capitalized, but I don't think it's necessary to capitalize them all. Thoughts?

A thought (not A Thought):

Set Featured Image - because "Featured Image" is a terminus technicus inside WP, but
Add new category, because it's generally spoken.

Keeping this logic most of them would not need to be capitalized.

I think I am right in saying this needs design feedback, not an actual design. I am going to add that keyword.

Relevant to this ticket: the ongoing discussion on the Gutenberg repository, with the proposal to shift to sentence case where possible. See

I don't think this needs design. I also don't think it needs changing.

I do believe for Gutenberg (Block Editor) it has been decided on using more of a sentence form.
For instance I installed and activated the theme TT1. Then went to the Site Editor. Looked at a few different panels. Border settings, Width settings, etc.

Switching to a post in Gutenberg. Panel says Featured image and there is a text that says "Set featured image" on top of the clickable box to where one sets the image.

Turning on the Classic Editor plugin. Looking at the panels, and if one wanted to have the same text structure as Post Attributes then I would assume that one might also want to adjust the Featured image text to Featured Image. Fix or not to fix.... well that is more difficult to say. I removed "Needs design feedback" as it is not design. It is more of a copy/text than a design related fix.
