Re: How do I kill smart quotes in new writing?

Edit > Substitutions > Smart Quotes is native to macOS. See Safari, Pages, Numbers, Mail, Notes, Reminders, etc. It isn't specific to Scrivener. Cool. You followed a bad design format because? I don't care where Mac OS usually puts it. I don't use most of those programs in such a way that I have to...

Re: How do I kill smart quotes in new writing?
