I usually don’t use the smart quotes feature, but when I do, its behaviour is somewhat inconsistent.
It depends on the UI language and locale settings, really. I set both of these to British English, so when I use smart quotes with English, there is no problem. However, when I want to use smart quotes in Hebrew, things start to get confusing. What usually happens is that the first quotation mark is usually automatically set to the opening curly quotation mark, but the closing mark does not change until after you add a character after it and click Format>Autocorrect>Apply.
This behaviour changes, though. Sometimes the closing quote won’t change even after clicking Format>Autocorrect>Apply; Sometimes both the quotes are applied correctly without doing anything; And sometimes both remain the default quotes.
This is a rather confusing problem, which seems to me to stem from some problematic concepts, but I would like some help in understanding it so that if there is any bug to report, it will be done specifically and correctly.
Thanks in advance!
