Special character issue

Have issues with inverted commas in Libreoffice. If I enter some text that includes an inverted comma (from the keyboard), into Libreoffice, and then copy/paste that into another document, that expects the "keyboard" inverted comma, it is not recognised. Is there a fix for this? Thanks.

may be you face a problem with a localized option of the AutoCorrect function. Please untick option Replace in Tools -> AutoCorrect Options ... Tab: Localized Options -> Category: Single Quotes

Please note The path to the option given is only valid for Calc ( thus calc needs to be running to set). For Writer the path is slighty different.

Hope that fixes your issue.
