Description shmuelh 2010-08-25 07:07:33 UTC
I often have to use a double quote mark followed by a single quote mark. When I
have OO set to smart quotes, the single quote mark is always a closing other
than an opening quote mark.

Confirming. One quote coming after another seems to regard the first one a
letter, thus the second quote always changes to a "closing" quote. Adjusting
summary. Single quotes are not replaced by default. Quote replacement can be
adjusted via "Tools - AutoCorrect options". 

Some self-describing examples:

 - A „double“ smart quote.
 - A ‚single‘ smart quote
 - Expected „‚combi‘ nation“ of both
 - Current „‘wrong‘ outcome“ when combined
 - Current ‚“other“ way‘ round has the same problem

Note that the position, type and angle of the quotes are different in different
languages and styles, but this problem is a general one, regardless what
characters are chosen to replace the quotes.

Workarounds:
 - Add a space between them and later delete the space
 - Do a Search&Replace with the correct characters throughout the document after
finishing the text

Reassigned to OS.
