How do I get properly configured quotation marks ? I can get "or” but not the shape I would use to begin a quotation with, so why two marks the same on the keyboard.This is probably an antique gripe but why no fix ?
Anybody answering ”that's just the way it is, get used to it“ may have my very worst thoughts.

Re: Quotation Marks
That was a bit premature ! anyway allI was talking about is that the quotation marks offered are identical, eg slanting from left to right like ” “ this from the slide options ( that is using both offerings) or like this " vertical. What was obviously originally intended on the slide option was a mark oriented like` ( but doubled) to start the quotation, but what ended up happening was the same symbol repeated on the slide. I don't like "this" cheap shortcut and would prefer the option that we have half of on the slide “ which is a more attractive cheapo shortcut to the correct answer posted by Tartarus.

It goes without saying or Unicode association in general chose for this easy to type easy to read quotation symbol out of convenience. The old typewriter like quotation mark is nice and I prefer those as well but if there is not much demand for it, it won't come back on itself.
I have to say I like this symbol better because it's one symbol for opening and closing quotations whereas the classic quotation symbols need one for opening and one for closing, thus leading for more congestion in the already small and crowded keyboards.
I think you'll be better of with third party keyboards in this matter.

Re: Quotation Marks
bugger, I keep doing that ! anyway put your finger where I said and hold, what do you see.... yes you are right two symbols exactly the same, The first ” needs to be reversed to get the result that must have been the intent of the person that set this keyboard up. I wish I hadn't started this thread, difficult to get my point across to you, must be an American thing ?

I tried getting a screenshot but you either have to be a ninja or a Jedi to figure out how to take a screenshot while also long pressing the keyboard.
