PDF conversion problem with quotes.
Looking through the forums, I see that PDF conversion is a tricky beast. So thank you for all the work to making it as painless as it is.
The issue I have is I have PDFs that use ‘ and ’ for quote marks which when converted to any other format show up as „ and ” respectively and I'm trying to figure out the best way to solve it.
I tried "Transliterate unicode characters to ASCII" as well as "Smarten Punctuation" without success.
I ran the debug process and the problem occurs in the input plugin. I didn't know if I need to find some way to edit the PDFs prior to putting them into Calibre or if there was a way for me to replace „ with ‘ and ” with ’ before Calibre converts from the html to the mobi/epub or if there's another answer.

I use Mobipocket Creator to convert PDFs. It imports the PDF and generates an editable HTML file during the conversion. I edit the file in Word and then rebuild the book with Mobipocket, and add it to Calibre. It's a little tedious, but it does work.

You'll need to use Sigil or a text editor to do a find and replace after conversion. There isn't any feature in Calibre at this point that lets you do search and replace on screwed up quotes.
