how to remove curly quotes

I forgot how to replace curly quotes. This. should be simple.

Edit your question (don’t answer) to explain what you mean: replace them with Edit>Find & Replace, auto substitution with Tools>AutoCorrect, …?

With the “Alt” key and the number pad

Alt + 123 = {

Alt + 125 = }

These are curly brackets - OP is talking about curly quotes (opening and closing, single and double quotes).

OK. .
