bug/error in 2.6

Post by soulbarn » 2006-05-15 11:09:13

this is either a bug or a mistake, depending on how you interpret it. But it is clearly a problem! \\ :wink:

If you type a sentence in quotes, and close the quoted phrase with a comma and then a quote mark, ie:

"I love nisus," said the monkey.

Nisus interprets the close quote as a new open quote mark, rather than as a proper close quote mark (of course, this only happens if "smart quotes" is enabled in the Quick Fix section of preferences.)

I thought I might try a workaround on this - actually making a quick fix entry for comma-open quote to sub comma-close quote, but I guess quickfix only does plain text.

any way to fix this?

thanks,

Dan

This doesn't happen for me. The second quotation mark comes out as a closing quotation mark. I'm afraid I have no idea why it doesn't work properly in your case. Anybody?

actually, I've noticed that it doesn't always happen for me, either. I'm able to reproduce it, but there seems to be no logical reason I can see (though there must be one, somewhere in the code, I guess) for one instance or the other.

Oh well.

If you can, send the document to expressfeedback@nisus.com and tell us where in the document the problem occurs exactly.

Whenever I have had this happen, I have found that it was because I had accidentally put a space in there that I hadn't noticed. You sure that's not the case with your texts?
