Correct quotation marks by straight quotation marks in Microsoft Word

This is often a problem, when we edit an html text in Microsoft Word or Live Writter.

The problem is a code like

"/ Questions-about-technologies-cad /"> Strange questions about CAD technologies </a>

It will give us trouble, since the quotation marks we occupy should be the straight lines as follows:

«/ Questions-about-technologies-cad /«> Strange questions about CAD technologies </a>

When we want to replace in Word, it does not pay attention to us, and when we have some type of font where the change is not perceived the madness is worse. So here are some recommendations:

1. With Live Writter

We must keep the options that will affect us off. Including the long dash field, let's remember that a type label <! - -> Would be lost, in case we do a copying / pasting of Word to LiveWritter or the WordPress editor.

Quotation marks

The problem can be insignificant until we copy html content from WordPress or a code editor and paste it into LiveWritter, or into Word.

2. With Microsoft Word

This is done from "File> Options", as in LiveWritter. Mind you, you have to make the change in the Autoformat and Actions tabs, as indicated in the following image:

3. How to replace the typeface with the straight quote

In case it already exists, then a search / replace is done. Recall that in this option, Word does not allow the difference, but with the quoting option inactive, it will replace them all with straight quotation marks.

To disable this at WordPress level, you must use the plugin Wpuntexturize
