typografic quotes on textimport

Recommended Posts

Even though in preferences autocorrection I set the mark to typografik quotes. They keep beeing the wrong ones on import and later. I cannot change them all per hand.

You should investigate using Find & Replace

Depending on your usage of quotes in your document it will be easy or hard but not as hard as changing them all manually


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

:D This also not an easy way. If you have " at the beginning and at the end. I thought setting the hook in preferences will fix it. so what is the hook for?

That occurs when you type quotes in a document not when you paste text that contains quotes

Or use a cleaning app before. There could be so many other typographic mistakes that should be cleaned before.

Ok. It seems the only solution is find&replace. :(

Why the sad face?

Find & Replace is awesome and can save you loads of time on problems like this.

You should be happy :) that you have a quicker solution than doing it manually, you just need to figure out the best way to do the Find & Replace on your document

Perhaps because you cannot save and load cleaning macros. And the lack of doing the job with one click.
