Apply “curly quotes” when typing single or double quotes
It would be great to enter “curly quotes” (smart quotes) when typing ' or " in a text box, for elegant typography:
- Right Single Quotation Mark (U+2019)
- Left Double Quotation Mark (U+201C)
- Right Double Quotation Mark (U+201C)
This could be added as an option for text blocks, perhaps as a checkbox below "letter spacing". I would turn this on by default.

To achieve this, make sure your text editor or word processing software is configured to automatically replace straight quotes with curly quotes. Most modern editors have this feature, and you can often find it in the settings or preferences menu. If you're writing in a markup language like Markdown or HTML, the rendering engine may automatically convert straight quotes to curly quotes.
