Hey there,
 
I’m using Paper in Chrome, and my quotes” are straight, diagonal lines, not curly. 
 
What browser and operating system are you using? 
 
Thanks!

I'm using chrome on Linux.

Curly quotes may be the wrong term. I'm talking about what they call "smart quotes" in some word processors. When I type in a regular, vertical quotation marks on my keyboard, paper is automatically changing it to a diagonal quote pointing in a different direction depending on which side of the word it is on.

I would like to be able to type the regular quotation mark on my keyboard without it changing the character to something else.

Hey, 
 
Thanks for the extra details. I see what you mean. 
 
This isn’t currently an option, but I’ll pass your comments on to our Paper team so that they’re aware. 
 
Cheers
