Please disable "smart quote" (aka curly quotes) substitution in Code Blocks!

Recommended Posts

I paste in a lot of code into Evernote documents (usually from Sublime Text), and am constantly annoyed when my double-quotes are converted into "curly quotes" when I paste them into Code Blocks.

Is there a way to disable this? It drives me crazy!

@Mel Matsuoka I believe this is controlled by the OS, you can disable it in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text > uncheck "Use smart quotes and dashes"

Any progress on this? It seems like a ridiculous solution to need to turn off smart text formatting system-wide in order for codeblocks to prevent auto formatting, especially considering that virtually every web form that uses code blocks (stackoverflow, github, etc.) can handle this. Using smart quotes is important for my other text processing, I just want evernote to prevent them in codeblocks.

What daeda wrote here applies exactly to my needs:

  • Smart quotes in text processing: YES
  • Smart quotes in codeblocks: NO

No support of smart (curly) quotes for text processing in Evernote is a big showstopper (was contemplating upgrading).

To rezecib: I’m on macOS Mojave and this setting is indeed enabled —but no effect in Evernote…!

It looks like now evernote has disabled smart quotes everywhere (Mac Desktop App 7.12)?
