Smart Quotes

I wonder if any among this revered community of traders is able to assist please?

I have just finished a novel with much direct speech which, through necessity, makes use of inverted commas (speech marks/quotation marks.)

Upon proof reading, I have discovered that I have within the text both 'smart quotes' and standard quotation marks and, of course, this is unsatisfactory. Therefore, can anyone who knows WORD better than me tell me please how I may change all inverted commas in the extensive text to the desired smart quotation format throughout without having to undertake the task manually?

Thank you.

Sean

Sean,

Do the following:

In Word click on Edit and select Replace

You will now get a two boxes that say "Find what" and another that says "Replace with"

In the Find box enter '

In the Replace with box enter "

Then select Replace All and that is it .

seancass started this thread I knew I could rely on you, Paul.

Many thanks; problem solved.

There were over 8,000 instances of change which I would have undertaken manually!
