[Migrated] No changes inside single straight quotes
Open, Needs TriagePublic


No changes inside single straight quotes. This request arises from discussion at the previous feature request: "no_changes_inside_quotation_marks". Most (if not all) quotes have a non-word character on one side of the single straight quote. Most (there are exceptions) apostrophes have a word character on both sides. I'd rather have an occasional miss than be beaten up for a false positive. Could we use a non-word character outside the single straight quote marks as a distinction for super-cautious editing? @Lightmouse

Do you want this as general fix?

I thought a general fix was an edit. This is not an edit, it's almost the opposite of an edit. I suspect it would need to be an option. Not everybody would need or want to use it.

I think this was fixed. If you scroll up a little youll see it. The new SVN just hasnt come out yet.

You may be referring to single curly quotes. I should have made clear that I'm talking about single straight quotes. Thanks. I've amended the text above.

I note that HideMore is, by definition, an option for cautious editing. Perhaps the misses are rare enough that it could be added to HideMore for all users until we can selectively choose options.
