I love the ability to put footnotes in their proper place (which took me ages before), and pictures too.

I've just one very simple question.

The book I'm working on is littered with quotation marks. About half the double quotes, like this - " - appear instead as two single quotes, looking like this - ' ' - (though in that case I have put a space between them, just to show what it actually looks like) but I don't seem to be able to do a search and replace to get rid of the latter and replace with the former.

I'd love to be able to kill them all at one fell swoop, but I don't seem able to do it. Is there something I'm missing?
Which search type did you use? regex: escape each of the quote(s): \'\'
are you in code view (you should be for a global replace)?
