    I upgraded from 1.6 to 2.0.

    I now have many documents (chapters of a book) that contain plain quotation marks. Is there a way to globally change them all to smart quotes in these documents?

    Thanks.

    Sorry for the delay. I was searching for a way to globally change all quotes in all Documents at once, but was not successful. You can change the quotes in each Document by opening the Document, go to Edit > Substitutions > Show Substitutions, enable Smart Quotes and click "Replace all".

    With a document open, Show Substitutions is grayed out—so I can't select it. Smart Quotes is enabled.

    Please advise.

    Thanks.

    Is the Editor currently the active panel? Maybe you need to click inside the Editor once after you opened the Document.

    Yes, the Editor window is active; I clicked in it. I also tried selecting the text, but Show Substitutions remains grayed out.

    Is there something in preferences that needs to be on?

    Another try: Do you use Snow Leopard? As far as I know, the Substitions menu does only work on Snow Leopard. It's a bug we'll fix as soon as possible that the menu is shown even if you cannot use it on your system.

    That's it then; I haven't installed Snow Leopard yet--waiting for Epson to provide an updated print driver.

    Also, I'm sure you know the Edit is repeated in the menu bar.

    Thanks.

    Yes, that's the bug I mentioned. The first one should be for Snow Leopard, the second for older systems. We'll fix this in 2.0.3.
