A useful feature of TeXworks is the smart quote. Does TeXstudio have a similar feature? (to replace
'' with their Unicode opening and closing counterparts)
TexStudio provides a better method to covert your text into LaTeX directly by going to
Idefix->Paste as Latex / Covert to Latex
or if your are writing in the TexStudio itself then please go the options
Options->Configure TexStudio -> Editor ->Replace Double Quotes -> Select English quote
OK, whenever you write a double quote in the editor it will automatically changed to smart quotes.
Besides the feature to replace double quotes with their TeX companions (e.g. ```` `` and
'') or their Unicode equivalents which is only available in the SVN version, you can use User Macros. Single Quotes can currently only be replaced by them.
Trigger LaTeX Content/Tag (?<=\s|^)" “ (?<=\S)" ” (?<=\s|^)' ‘ (?<=\S|^)' ’
You may also look into the
csquotes package which is very powerful when it comes to nested quotations or making
" a trigger for quotes.
