I have a 700 page LibreOffice Writer document that contains innumerable straight (’) quotation marks - along with autocorrected curly ones - that I would like to replace with single smart quotation marks.
I located a likely fix that involves:
- Checking the Regular Expressions option.
- Entering the strings '< or '. in the Find field, and
- Various strings in the Replace field (e.g. CTRL+0147, the ASCII number for a curly left quote).
Although this process finds each incidence of a straight quote, it does not replace same.
Any advice offered would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I am using the latest version of Libre, on a Windows 7 laptop.
