All the best,
Fair enough. I can turn them on for typing and then project replace them back out later.
^ That probably seems an odd thing to do, so a quick explanation:
Due to the nature of what I'm typing I sometimes have to get "creative" with grammar and this results in a fair few ellipses and dashes.
My workflow is probably unique in that I split all my documents at the paragraph level (typically less than 200 words) and then copy all those paragraphs into their respective synopses so that I can use the outliner to get a full text CSV export with all the metadata.
When loaded into Excel, the smart dashes and ellipses don't display correctly - that's due to the encoding, but IIRC I couldn't change the encoding because then the CSV didn't import into Aeon Timeline correctly (or something like that, it's been a while...)
So while I could just turn smart dashes and ellipses off - apparently I'm a lazy typist and I really depend on Fix Capitalization of Sentences, and without the smart ellipses way too many things get capitalized.
I already project replace the ellipses out of the synopses, I can do the same for the dashes.
Like i said, "pretty niche".
