Sometimes I want to type up tests into Google Docs and share with colleagues. But I find myself having to send these texts as .txt files later, after replacing these fancy " and ' characters.
I want the straight "normal" kinds, so I can feed the typed text into a shell, or script, and so on. An example:
What I want when I type using the " / ' key:
What google drive gives me:
See how there are SIX types of quote marks? I want to make it so when I type ", I get " and not “ or ” ... the difference may be easier to see l larger:
yes: " ' no: “ ” ‘ ’
Man I hate these curly slanty quote things.
I would honestly like to ban them on any editor I use - trying to debug one of these weird quote marks isn't always easy! If you don't do any scripting/programming, the need for this won't likely make sense.
Is there a way to stop Google Docs from inserting these slanted quotes instead of the straight, shell-recognized type? Or am I stuck emailing plain text files in both line endings so I can send out my tests to the team?
