If it’s in Dabble with the full functionality of PWA, will I need PWA too??
Hopefully not but we’ll wait and see!
For example it knows how to format quotations, down to the use of smart quotation marks.
This particular feature drives me up the wall some days – I use straight quotation marks in Word because I got sick of having the wrong direction curly quotes on things, and I’m used to Markdown and Code IDEs where straight quotes are the norm.
Not sure is straight quotes over curly is a fiction writing faux pas I’m unaware of – it seems like an easy fix in copyediting if needed by using Word macros, I haven’t really had any editors or publishers that have minded, and I get zero grumbles on straight quotes compared to regular grumbles about my uncooperative curlies.
But Dabble is smart quotes only at the moment, whenever I combine written-elsewhere with written-in-Dabble work the different quotation marks give PWA palpitations and I have to spend a while doing manual curly quote additions. (I stuck a feature request in if anyone else is running into this problem.)
Thanks for the Pandoc link @Johannes_Rexx – going to need to give that a look!
