I'm a new LyX user needing to convert a novel manuscript to LyX format. I
managed to remove all but the barebones formatting from my
OpenOffice-formatted document (could not export directly to LyX -- didn't
work for some reason), but now I cannot seem to find any way to convert all
the quotes to smart, or curly, quotes. They're all straight quotes.

The only thing I've discovered so far is to manually go through and delete
the left-quote / right-quote and type in the new one. With over 400 pages
including extensive dialogue, this is a huge undertaking!

Does anyone know of a macro-type method or any other method to automatically
convert straight quotes to smart/curly quotes?

FYI, I've already tried search-and-replace, but this too is a time-consuming
task, having to go through and search each left straight quote and replace
it with a left smart quote, then do the same for the right. Twice through
400+ pages...not fun.

Any help is appreciated.
