But what I want is a way to type "some text" and have it changed --
preferably automatically -- to the LaTeX form ``some text''.
Surely this is a desirable, even essential, feature of any
Or have I once again been spoiled by WinEdt under Windows, which of
course makes that substitution if you enable to preference for it.

Murray, Go to the Edit menu, and select Substitutions. It is a submenu;
“Smart Quotes”item The menu is “document by document”, as are most
So the document you want this to affect must be active when you select
TeXShop will remember the last choices for the “Substitutions” submenu
them the next time you start. Having said all of this, smart quotes are
useful in TeXShop because they don’t insert “TeX code”, but instead just
quotes directly. This might work in XeTeX or LuaTeX (I haven’t checked)
in ordinary LaTeX. Dick Koch
