Dialog text highlighting


Here’s an idea - how about a way to automatically highlight dialog text between quotation marks, such as a different text color? That’d make it easy to find and correct missing end quotes. Chime in users if this sounds useful.


I wouldn’t want that to be some sort of real-time thing while writing. I’d rather it was in the smart edit mode of Write. I don’t want to be interrupted when I’m being brilliant.


It might get confused if you use single quotes - finding it difficult to separate them from apostophes.


I was thinking of it as an option, something you could leave on, or turn on and off as a check. It could conceivable handle double quotes, single quotes, or italics (direct thoughts), possibly in different colors.
