The quotes extension extended

I often get texts where straight commas are used for the quotes: "test" or ‘test’. I then have to manually convert all those to the pairings: “test” or ‘test’. The quotes extension does this well but only when there are no quotes yet. It could be extended in such a way that if there are already ‘incorrect’ quotes, they are removed (otherwise you end up with two pairs). Is this possible?

(The single quotes [U+0027] are automatically converted to the pair by this editor. Don’t get them inserted with no possibility).

Apparently nobody interested…

It’s a good suggestion and makes a lot of sense, thank you. I’ve noted it in my ideas tracker for an improvement to quotes ext.

Thanks a lot! :+1:
