Hi dear colleagues,

I´m trying to set TagEditor to automatically type "comillas tipográficas" (the curved ones) instead of the straight ones, with no luck. Copy/Pasting is proving a most boring chore, believe.
I have changed the option in Word, it does work there, but with no effect under TagEditor... for some reason I thought that changing it in Word would have had any effect under TagEditor, but I was being optimistic.

Does anyone know how to set this up?

Thanks in advance for any help, people.

Cheers,
I

Yep.

Open Google, then type "Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator".
Download and create your own keyboard layout.

Cheers

Thanks for your suggestions, guys Apr 29, 2008

But I do use both the Traditional Spanish keyboard layout and the US English keyboard layout, depending on what language I am writing.

The thing is that in most programs, when entering inverted commas in Spanish, I get the ones I'm after, (“ ”), but in TagEditor I get the straight ones, (" "). No matter what keyboard layout I'm using.

This might sound irrelevant in most cases, but in some projects I'm specifically instructed to use this type of commas, therefore my inquiry.

I know I can do a search/replace in the final document, but I'd rather do it the right way from teh beginning than relying on postprocessing...

Thanks for the thought, though.

Any more ideas?

Thanks people!
I

For now I'm using the AutoText function Apr 29, 2008

Hi guys,

Just to let you know how I'm getting by, to get out of this situation, I have set up the two Spanish inverted commas in the AutoText function of TagEditor, and I'm adding them individually when necessary.

If anyone can think of a more direct input method, I'm all ears

Bests,
I
