Hello,
I'm just starting a project and I have to use smart (curly) ’ quotes in Studio. In French, I can of course use Alt0146 but I noticed a function in Studio 2015.

Options > Editor > Auto-Correct. Uncheck the box Replace “Straight quotes” with smart quotes.

I check the box and oh bad surprise, Studio 2015 inserts reverse smart quotes ‘.

Does someone know who to fix this issue?

Many thanks!

Hi Nathalie, Jan 17, 2017

I think it's in the Auto-Correct options.

Yes, I know but I get reverse curly apostrophes instead of curly apostrophes.
Thanks anyway. Good evening.

Sorry... Jan 17, 2017

Sorry Nathalie, I'm afraid I didn't carefully read your post. Because I'm using a swiss keyboard which is most convenient for my language pairs, I never run in these problems: it has all possible strokes at my disposal and I can switch to one of the languages in Windows. I guess you could do the same with *any* keyboard by loading the appropriate language options in Windows, but a solution for your question is still outstanding, I hope someone else will intervene.

Greetings,
Mike

Not really a surprise Jan 18, 2017

The quotes are quotation marks - surrounding a quotation. The opening pair is automatically “upside down” and the second pair is regular - because this is how quotations should be. I assume that software is programmed accordingly.
Manually: Alt +0147 for upside down and Alt +0148 for regular, or you will have to program your keyboard.
