Is there any way to get Finale to use typographer's quotes in text items other than ALT-0146, etc.? There's an interesting article by John D. Berry on creativepro.com where he states:

"To anyone with any sensitivity to the shapes of letters, whether they know the terms of typesetting or not, this straight apostrophe is like a fart in a symphony -- boorish, crude, out of place, and distracting."

Word, InDesign, and PageMaker all do this automatically and I'm sure many other programs do as well. Can Finale do this and I'm just missing a setting or does this fall into the feature request category?

Sorry Anon, I don't know of any way to get Finale to do this other that the ALT way you described. Great feature request though. Be sure to email it to winsupport.

a.k.a. smart quotes. I have my F10, F11 and F12 keys (the extra ones, bless my multiply redundant keyboard) programmed for ’. “ and ”. (I wonder if those symbols will appear properly!) You might try Quickeys or something like it for alt-0146, 0147 and 0148.
