Hello, TechWR-L-ers,

I want to keep the smart quotes in my Word docs, but I also want to have straight quotes in the code snippets that I include.

But the easiest way Iâve found so far is to type the quote mark in the code and then press Ctrl-Z to undo Wordâs smart quotes conversion from straight-to-curly.

Anyone have an easier method?

I have defined a Code paragraph style (for full lines of code) and Code character style (for inline code elements), with an appropriate font, but the logical thing of being able to tell Word to not do Smart Quotes for these styles doesnât seem to be possible...
