Description sommerluk 2019-03-15 20:40:21 UTC
Auto-correction of typographic quotation marks and apostrophes is broken for fr_CI

Steps to Reproduce:
In the character properties, set the text language to “French (Ivory Coast”. Than, type this in your document:

"C'est un test."

Actual Results:
Actual results: No auto-correction at all. The typed text remains unchanged.

Expected Results:

« C’est un test. »

Reproducible: Always

Not set up for this locale, so not confirming. But looking at source the Côte d'Ivoire fr_CI localedata [1] seems a bit thin, and modeled on Burkina Faso fr_BF [2] for some reason. But with no Markers stanzas, where should it pick up French quotation Guillemets--I'd assume the "fr" LangID--doesn't seem to be according to OP.
