Smart quotes fail in parentheses

Beta 1.5
When using quotation marks after an open parentheses, the quotation mark faces the wrong way.
Example: “This is an example (”of what,” you may ask) that you’ll find interesting.”

I’m new to the product but wanted to comment that this is a significant problem for me. I do a lot of legal writing and consistently need to quote from cases, etc.

I’ve also noticed and been annoyed by this. Interesting to see that the problem’s been dangling for more than two years now (I’m running Scrivener 1.6.0.0 for Windows). Surely a really easy fix.

Not quite, but you can work around it: https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/inverted-commas-within-brackets/23303/2

I’ll look forward to the fix. Thanks for the workaround in the mean time. -M.
