Stop substitution of quotes

Each time I write a quote like this one -> "

It is converted to these ones -> ”

Which is really frustrating when documenting code. I did not find the option to disable this behavior, but I'm probably blind :-)

Where is this option ?

Thank you.

Hi @Jonathan Lamarre ,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I don't know about the possibility to turn it off, but maybe you can use Code macro/snippet?

Hello, I am aware of code macro/snippet, but I simply want to write in the text without formatting. And of course, I said code here, but quotes can be used in other contexts too. For now, each time I enter " and it this converted into ” I press ctrl+z immediately after to cancel the automatic conversion. It is a workaround, but not a pleasant one.

I would just like to not have to do this.

Thank you.

At @Hana Kučerová, I would like, if possible, a definitive answer about this : is it just impossible to turn off this behavior ?

If it is impossible, I would find it strange, normally any automatic formatting/correcting features in pretty much any edition software I can think of can be turned off. If it is impossible, where could a feature request for this could be made ?

If you don't know the answer to these questions, who could answer it ? I could not find any related documentation.

Thank you.

Hi @Jonathan Lamarre ,

I'm not aware of such functionality.

If you want to be 100% sure, you can always contact Atlassian support.

Feature request can be made in Atlassian Jira

@Hana Kučerová Thank you very much for your time :-)
