Cool convert straight quotes to curly quotes

option to have calibre automatically convert straight quotes to curly quotes. Also handles em/en-dashes and ellipses. Found under 'Look & Feel' in the conversion options

kovid....for some reason i cannot find this option where it's stated it's supposed to be located.

thanks
