Apostrophes not processed

If your original text files were saved using Microsoft Word™, you may find Concord can't find apostrophes or quotation marks in them! This is because Word can be set to produce "smart" symbols. The ordinary apostrophe or inverted comma in this case will be replaced by a curly one, curling left or right depending on its position on the left or right of a word. These smart symbols are not the same as straight apostrophes or double quote symbols.


Solution: select the symbol in the character set in the Controller, then paste when entering your search word, or else replace them in your text files using Text Converter.
