It is virtually impossible to tell the difference between, for example, straight quotes and curly quotes when they are a find or replace term in "Find" or "Find & replace".
It would be convenient if there was some way to increase the size of certain entered characters in "Find and Replace" to make it possible for the naked eye to resolve fine differences between certain characters – such as quotation marks, apostrophes etc. Older users especially might appreciate this.
Clearly -1 to UI zooming. It's up to the font designer to make quotes easy to distinguish.
The actual point is probably that you haven both straight and curly quotes in your document but you find only the exact match. Don't see a simple solution for this out of the box.
Ultimately I believe this issue is a duplicate of bug 126752 (F&R returns auto replacement too).
