I noticed that the captions default to straight quotes and apostrophes in the captions.

"This isn't right."
“That’s better.”

And what makes this really bad is that if I actually type in some text, PPro defaults to curly quotes, so I get a mix of straight and curly quotes in my subtitles. AWFUL!

And in some fonts, if 'smart quotes' are turned on, you may get a white square instead of an apostrophe ... just a warning. That's been posted on the forum here by a number of folks recently.
