    I am looking at using the Telerik WPF 2014.1's Office 2013 implicit theme. How can I allow mixed-casing in the Header Captions instead of always having upper-cased text?

    Kind Regards,

    Hello Albert,

    Thank you for contacting is. You should predefine the template of GridViewHeaderCell against Office2013 and remove the tag from the ContentPresenter within its template. 

    <ContentControl x:Name="ContentPresenter" Foreground="{TemplateBinding Foreground}"
                           Style="{StaticResource StretchedContentControl}" Margin="{TemplateBinding Padding}"
                           IsTabStop="{TemplateBinding IsTabStop}"  Content="{TemplateBinding Content}"
                           ContentTemplate="{TemplateBinding ContentTemplate}"
                           VerticalAlignment="{TemplateBinding VerticalContentAlignment}"
                           HorizontalAlignment="{TemplateBinding HorizontalContentAlignment}" />

    The same should be done for GridViewGroupPanel:

    <Style x:Key="GridViewGroupPanelStyle" TargetType="grid:GridViewGroupPanel">
           <Setter Property="Template" Value="{StaticResource GridViewGroupPanelTemplate}"/>
           <Setter Property="ItemsPanel" Value="{StaticResource GridViewGroupPanelItemsPanelTemplate}"/>
           <Setter Property="Background" Value="{telerik:Office2013Resource ResourceKey=MainBrush}"/>
           <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="{telerik:Office2013Resource ResourceKey=InvertedBrush}"/>
           <Setter Property="Padding" Value="7 9"/>
           <Setter Property="MinHeight" Value="30"/>
           <Setter Property="Tag" Value="office2013"/>

    This tag is used to apply internal logic that returns the upper case version of the headers. 
    I'm also attaching you sample project, which demonstrates how to achieve your goal.
