Turning Off Smart Quotes for Specific Styles

Copper Contributor

I use styles to format blocks of codes inside Word documents. In such a case, straight quotes should not be converted to Smart Quotes, that is


joe = getJoe("name");


should not become


joe = getJoe(“name”);


However this is not currently possible in Word. This is a feature that would be really useful for whoever is writing technical documentation.

Hi @dejudicibus 

Hm - you can disable smart quotes in autocorrect options, but not in function of specific styles.

The closest I can get is to find and replace smart quotes, described for instance in HowToGeek - https://www.howtogeek.com/213423/how-to-replace-some-not-all-smart-quotes-in-a-word-2013-document/

Kind regards
