Format text between quotes in Word

New Contributor

Hello everybody

Is there any expression by which I can find and replace the text in quotation marks with the same text but without the quotation marks and italics?
Find: "text"
Replace: text

Thank you!

I tried this expression:

Find: [”]([A-Za-z0-9., ]@)[\”]

It identifies what I need but I don't know what to put into replace to change the text to italics.

I think you need to add <> to your string.

In Replace you type \1

Go to More → Format→ Font, choose italics.



Find "

Replace - leave blank. Don't forget to delete the formatting.

If your quotation marks are the ones that are different for opening and closing, repeat the cycle with the other from the pair.

Is working, thank you very much!
