Difference between cites in Visual Editor and in Word doc

Hi there,

I am working with the Chicago Manual of Style 17th edition (note) style.

The title of a web reference is appearing with single apostrophes in Word. I went to edit the style using the Visual CSL Editor and saw that the same web reference (which I imported) is appearing correctly in the Visual Editor with double apostrophes.

Why would there be a difference between the appearance of a footnote between the Visual CSL Editor and the Word doc version if the same style is being used in both?

Thank you for your help.

  • Change the language, likely to en-US instead of en-GB in the document preferences (quotation marks, among other things, are determined by the locale; I'm pretty sure the visual editor would default to en-US)
  • You are a genius @adamsmith - thank you very much!
