    You just type out the single quotes - there is an open and close quote key on your keyboard.
    The open quote is located to the left of the "1" and the close is two to the right of the "L" on a qwerty keyboard.

    In addition, the proper way to do double quotes in LaTeX is to use to single quotes:
    Code (LaTeX):

    People should quote like ``this'' not like "that."

    Try copying and pasting the code I wrote in post #4, and remove one single quote on each side.

    Also grab... Oeteker T. et al (2014) The not so short introduction to LaTeX.
    https://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/english/?lang=en
    You want the pdf. Quotes (singe and double) are covered on p20-21.

    It is possible that there's a glitch in your LaTeX engine but that would be very unusual - it is far more likely that there is something about with the way you typed it out. If you still get the problem, copy and paste the exact source that you used to a reply.
