I have a plug-in (below) I've used in the past that changes straight apostrophes to curly ones, but since going to Finale 12, it doesn't seem to work. It says that it's run it, but nothing changes in the lyrics. Any ideas would be appreciated!

search "" replace with "<0146>" //single quote/apostrophe - >closing apostrophe

If you're only concern is apostrophes, why not use "Text Search and Replace" (Edit Menu).

I'd be pretty surprised if a pre-Finale-2012 plug-in that works on text, worked correctly on 2012, given the latter stores its text as Unicode, not 8-bit text!
