MS Word Find & Replace and "Smart" quotes question.

Hi there,

I want to replace all quotation marks in the document to "smart", but when I find-and-replace double quotation mark with double quotation mark (as shown in the video below at 02:05) I get French-style quotes (Guillemet) instead of smart ones. Do you guys know why this might happen? I have the same AutoCorrect option settings as he showed at the beginning of the video.


Here's the video:

BTW when I use AutoFormat dialog instead of Find-and-Replace they are changed to smart just fine. So, this is not a vital-like question to me or a problem that need to be solved, but rather my curiosity. I just would like to get a better understanding of MS Word and what's going on there.

BTW Happy New Year to all of you!
