Running FM 2017 Release Version 14.0.2.425 on a Win7 Pro (Svc Pack 1 Build 7601) HP Z420 Workstation w/ Intel Xeon CPU (desktop PC), I'm finding it impossible to get straight single quotes to display correctly in my FM document, even though the Format>Document>Text Options>Smart Quotes checkbox is not enabled. Double quotation marks appear perfectly fine as expected, but single quotation marks always appear as single closing "smart" quotation marks. Any suggestions? Thank You!

Try doing a CTRL+' (control key and single quote key together)

Applied all the patches? Tried another font? Tested by inserting the Unicode equivalent? Just tossing ideas out ;>)

Ok, I see the same thing happening in FM12 too - you're trying to get U+0027 ?
