Sometimes we have to use language-dependent typographic quotation marks (“”) in FrameMaker. They are also known as smart quotes or curly quotes and are often used in German. But the type of smart quotes cannot be set in the FrameMaker template. You have to edit the make.ini file.
To change the maker.ini file you need to have write access for the FrameMaker program folder. If you do not have write acccess, then save the maker.ini file in another directory and copy it to the program folder after editing.
Follow these steps:
1. Close FrameMaker.
2. Navigate to the FrameMaker program folder and open the maker.ini file in a text editor.
3. Search for "Smart Quote Characters".
At the end of the paragraph enter the required line for smart quotes:
5. Save the maker.ini file.
6. Restart FrameMaker.
When you now type quotation marks, FrameMaker automatically uses smart quotes for the selected language.
