When "Localized Options" is checked to replace "straight quotes" with "curly quotes" this generally works well, but if the quotes are intended to wrap a cross-reference by typing [quote-cross_cross-reference-quote], the final straight quote will be converted to a second opening quotation mark rather than a closing one.
The obvious work-around is to enter the text as [quote-quote], and then move the cursor back between the two curly quotes to insert the cross reference.
The same behavior occurs with autocorrection of both single and double quotes. Refining this behavior would be a nice enhancement.
I'm using LibreOffice Writer Version:
220.127.116.11.0+ Build ID: 5c6f7f0920a91c974e9639f2c751582c8f140b2b
running on 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04.02 LTS
I can confirm.
Any field that precedes the end quote will result in the quote not being autocorrected. So if you type, excluding the outer quotes, ""This is a test", insert a footnote, and type the end quote, then the quote will not be autocorrected.
Windows Vista 64
