It's been a long time since I needed this and "old age" has me forgetfull!

Does anyone know how to change the "curly end type" quotation marks to the straight version?

It seems that there is a keyboard short cut for this but I just can't remember it.


Thanks,


Marty

Shows up on the character map. In arial (maybe all of them), it's Alt.#034 .

Marty, Don't feel bad about getting "old". When I read this thread I thought about how I didn't know that this even existed. Next thought was I am going to have to remember this for future use. Next thought, I am too OLD to even remember about this post! I am getting so old and forgetful I can't learn anything else! I try to learn here and even make notes but lose my notes.... oh well......

It seems you get to a certain age, when every new piece of information that enters your head, pushes a old piece out to be lost forever:rolleyes:

But why does it always push out the good ones?:confused:
