When replacing single and double quotation marks with typographic ones, autocorrect works as it should when typing, but when this is someone uses the Tools, Autocorrect, Apply menu item, quotation marks are not changed unless the defaults are changed and set manually.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document that has straight single and double quotes.
2. Choose Tools, Autocorrect, Apply. (Nothing happens to the quotation marks)
3. Try typing quotation marks and, if they are set to be updated, they are automatically corrected.
The quotation marks are not updated.
The quotation marks are changed to typographic (curved) ones.
User Profile Reset: No
OpenGL enabled: Yes
The software should respect the localisation settings irrespective if it is while typing or when applied after.

Unfortunately, this Apply works only on paragraphs with Default paragraph settings, so you must change paragraph style to use it to correct quotation marks automatically.
I think, this is a UI bug, so it would be better to change that for a question, or something else.
Confirmed with 22.214.171.124.alpha0+
Tools > AutoCorrect > Apply will apply quotes in Localized Options in a paragraph with "Default Paragraph Style", but will not convert quotes in a paragraph with "Text Body" paragraph style.
