Default Smart Quotes


Hi, maybe anyone know how to insert round shaped or curly quotation “” marks instead of straight or paired ones? "" «».
Rounds shaped marks are not round in this post because of font.
Thanks in advance.

See what the Help for your version of Word says about “smart quotes”.

Word ordinarily inserts 'smart quotes' unless you have that feature disabled.

PS: I've given the thread a somewhat more meaningful title than the "_" you had.

Thank you. In Russian version smart quotes are these ones «». I meat curly quotation marks. I tried to program replace, but it still gives « instead of “. If I tick off box "smart quotes", it gives ".

In Word on a PC, you'd create the « & » (guillemet) symbols by typing '<' or '>' twice (i.e. '<<' or '>>') - Word's autocorrect function will convert them. Does that not work on the Mac?

Depending on the language version, you may have to add these AutoCorrect entries yourself.
