I’m terrible at using curly quotes, I often just use the straight double mark (Shift + ‘). Naughty me.

Here’s the keyboard commands to do it correctly:

  • Alt + ] = single curly quote ( ‘ )
  • Alt + Shift + ]= single curly quote ( ’ )
  • Alt + [ = an opening double curly quote ( “ )
  • Alt + Shift + [ = a closing double curly quote ( ” )
