Title: How can I turn off "smart" character substitut'ns?
Post by Gregg Williams on Sep 17th, 2014, 1:13pm

The field for note text automatically makes substitutions (for example, "--" becomes "" (an en- or em-dash, I forget which), straight-quotes -> curly-quotes, etc.). I want to be able to turn this off (for notes on computer code, for example).

I've looked in System Preferences for a place to turn this off in Keyboard > Shortcuts and have turned off everything I can find. I still get these substitutions.

Any ideas on how to turn this off? What am I missing?

Thanks!
