Curly quote straight quote bug?

Hi. I’ve recently noticed that I am picking up a mix of smart/curly and straight quotes in my work. At first I attributed this to copy-paste issues, but I’ve actually seen new text I type in get straight quotes (generally a single quote inside a contraction) even though curly quotes are the usual setting. If I backspace over the straight quote and type it again, I get a smart/curly quote instead. It seems to happen when I’m typing rapidly. Just today I typed this and accidentally hit the single-quote twice and got two different styles (see picture).

Any idea how to fix this? It’s utterly frustrating to accidentally edit in problems like these.

Thanks for the bug report. I’ll look into it. This popped up before but U thought I’d fixed it.
