Question Quotation marks missing...

Hey all, have read the PDF sticky but not much help on my issue.

Workflow:
PDF source > email to Amazon for AZW conversion > renamed AZW to MOBI extension > imported into calibre > edited metatags/cover > converted MOBI to MOBI > sent to K3

[roundabout I know, but I am working on it]

My issue is:
All quotation marks [ " ] and [ ' ] appear to have been lost and replaced with [ _ ] on the final MOBI file [on both calibre viewer and also K3].

[ " ] and [ ' ] were present in the original PDF and were present in the AZW file returned from Amazon.

Any tips about what I am doing wrong or am i just a moron?

tia!

Make sure you don't have a search and replace setup either in Preferences or in the conversion dialog for the book. Otherwise provide the conversion log for the MOBI to MOBI conversion. That might give some clues. To get the conversion log convert, click jobs at the bottom right, select the job and click show details.

^ thanks a ton, both for the advice and the AWESOME continuing work on calibre...

Will check settings as you mention and post log of next conversion where I notice this happening.

cheers,
