Some long documents have extensive quotations that may require different spelling standards, as when a foreign language or ancient English is being quoted. Even when the language is modern English, the only useful search results may be those only from inside quotations or only from outside of quotations. Affected documents often include academic scholarship, legal briefs, and students' papers. In Find, a selectable attribute should be only within quotations and another selectable attribute should be only outside of quotations, with both defaulting to off (both being on equalling both off). In Spellcheck, Options should include only within quotations and only outside of quotations, with both defaulting to off (both being on equalling both off). Besides quotation marks delimiting quotes, paragraph and character styles that are checkbox-identified as blockquotes or script quotations should be treated likewise. Script quotations should be whatever follows the first character that the user has defined as preceding a quotation, such as the paragraph's first colon or tab. A feature like this would probably add a user market for OOo that Microsoft Word, I think, does not fulfill. I'm using OOo Writer 2.4.0 without Java Runtime Environment on Linux Fedora Core 4 with Gnome 2.10.0 desktop on a Pentium 4 laptop. I didn't see these features. Thank you. -- Nick

Please attach example.

In this case: Chris wrote about flower colors in the passage, "The colors were fabulous." With a long manuscript, a user may want only strings within quotations or only strings outside of quotations, such as to replace all unquoted strings without altering any quoted strings, or to find something obscure that is only within a quotation. I'm not set up to create a screenshot to attach, so I hope this helps.
