Today, when using Writer, I saw that the double quotation marks are acting weird when I enable switching quotation marks in autocorrect options: the autocorrect only affects quotation marks that come after letters or after another quotation mark and a space. Here's a picture:
What can I do about this?
I can't think of any more details to add, but please tell me if I forgot something.
Thanks in advance!

A sample graphic showing the issue would help as from your description I cannot tell exactly what it is you are having difficulty with. According to Wikipedia Hebrew and English now use the same form of quotation mark. The alternate Hebrew form of quotation mark only differs in the closing mark, using either a Single Low-9 Quotation Mark (U+201a) or a Double Low-9 Quotation Mark (U+201e).
I would imagine that so long as the language is set correctly, and the auto-quotation mark settings are turned on, it should adapt as required. Obviously if you are dealing with a document containing both English and Hebrew and quotation marks of both types you are going to need to set the language according to the content in question.
