I've been using Déjà Vu 3 for many, many years. I was quite slow for learning how to use it (although I must recognize thet it's not difficult, the problem is between the screen and the chair, as my IT assistant says). It took me so long that I didn't want to move to DV X when it was launched.
I don't use DV 3 for several years now, so I may be wrong somewhere.
But it applies to DVX.
DVX is really mature now, why do not upgrade?
For years I have been exporting my documents without caring of quotation marks as « » nor non-breaking spaces (particularly before ":" and "?" and "!" and I used to fix that once I had exported the file in whatever format that was (MSWord, Excel, .ppt...) when checking grammar and spelling.
You can use a global search and replace operation within DV3.
For both, you'll probably need the codes I enclose below (these chars can't be entered in a normal way).
Of course, you can use the global search and replace in the target files.
As you know, in Word, the nbsp is Ctrl+Shif+space, it works for the global S&R operations.
Excel and PPT don't support nbsp directly but the codes below work well.
Then you can start to check the grammar and the spelling and don't pay so much attention to the nbsp and marks
You can use Alt+255 on the numpad for nbsp.
I know it exist but I'm too lazy to use it in a systematic way and/or define a shortcut
The codes for the French quotation marks are respectively Alt+0171 and Alt+0187.
I have decided that my knowledge could expand a little now (or that I have exceeded an acceptable limit of ignorance) and would appreciate if you could guide me in order to use that options page that I have never used (sentence delimiters?).
No, it's not related to the sentence delimiters.
It's just a problem with the Windows keyboard definition.
