Hello everyone

I'm translating a checked-out file in MemoQ 7.8.122 which has straight quotes in the text. When I start to type anything and my cursor is touching a word that touches a straight quote, MemoQ instantly changes that quote to a 9-shaped bottom curly quote. It changes this ["] to this [„]. I also can't type a normal quote -- when I try, MemoQ doesn't type a normal quote but types the 9-shaped bottom curly quote instead. My target language is set to Afrikaans (I assume) and we don't use bottom curly quotes in Afrikaans. How can I disable this bu^H^Hfeature?

"Translation" ribbon, click "Translation Settings" to reveal "AutoCorrect," disable "Replace straight quotes with smart quotes". I think this should do it!
