    Using typographer's quotes and straight quotes in the same block of text

    W2IRT Level 1

      I would like to be able to use both straight and "curly" quotes within the same sentence or paragraph without having to go into the app preferences change it, type the text, go in and change it again, etc.


      Typical example of a sentence I would need to do this for:

      The IRT's platforms are 510' long, and each car is 51'5".


      Can I create a character style that forces straight quotes when the default setting is typographer's quotes? I would say I need straight quotes maybe 5% of the time (if that), but when I need them, creating them is a royal pain. Even copying-pasting doesn't work as the pasted versions are curly.


      Thanks in advance.
