Hello everyone

I have a problem using quotation marks in WF glossary entries. Whenever a quotation mark is the first or the last character in the entry (either source or translation), reorganising the glossary erases this mark. For example, an entry like

Legal Act "Name of Act" (a typical format for names of legal documents in Russian)

turns into

Legal Act "Name of Act (the closing quotation mark is gone),

and

"relatedness" test

becomes

relatedness" test (the opening mark is gone, and the term is never recognised)



I use the wf_52 version. All my glossaries are in Unicode.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Marina
