For some unknown reason, MemoQ adds quotation marks before and after MS Word fields in the target DOTX file.
The source file is DOTX; MemoQ 2013 R2; imported with MS Word 2007, 2013 filter.

MemoQ shows a field as a set of tags, but also adds the field text as a separate segment:
Source text: During the month of [Month Letter was Mailed] you received a letter...
Segment 1 (for this text): During the month of |rpr)(btn)(rpr| you received a letter...
Segment 2 (for this field): [Month Letter was Mailed]

After I export the target file, the field appears in quotation marks:
During the month of "[Month Letter was Mailed]" you received a letter... - These marks are part of the field.

How can I get rid of these unwanted marks?

Thank you.
