Quotation marks (English)

Post by jzents » Wed Apr 28, 2021 4:22 pm

A large part of a current document was done with either the old Dragon for Mac (ver. 5 and 6) or Apple dictation/voice control. This resulted in a quite a few quotation marks that were not converted to typographer's quotation marks. For some reason I am having no luck in constructing a search and replace that will correct this. Finding the quotation marks is not a problem, it is the replacement that is, it always put straight ones back in even though preferences is set to do typographer's quotes. Does anyone have a suggestion? I would appreciate it if you do. Thank you!

A procedure for managing this task using Mellel's Find Set feature is in the Mellel Guide, at the end of the Advanced Typography section, "Replacing Straight Quotes." (p. 207 of the current version of the Guide)
