    Hi all,

    I'm currently typesetting a bilingual (French & English) document and was wondering if any of you have a solution to this.

    Is it possible to make a rule to say "keep quote marks on same line" for Guillemet marks (aka French quote marks « text goes here »)?

    Currently some quotes look like this:
    « blah blah blah

    when it should be:
    « blah blah blah »

    or breaking the last word to the next line would be OK, just as long as the quote mark isn't by itself.

    « blah blah
    blah »

    It's getting time consuming to search through a multi-paged document and manually adjusting the quotes.

    I would do a document-wide search on:

    word space + »

    and replace with:

    non-breaking space + »

    Keyboard shortcut is for a non-breaking space is: Alt+Command (Apple)+X
    It's also accessible through the Type Menu>Insert White Space
