No problem. They are called quotation marks, inverted commas or speech marks.

Yep, that’s for a Mac.

In Mac it's Option plus the brackets.

No wait, it's Option + [ for open quotes
Shift+Option + ] for close quotes.

BUT... how do you get the 'dumb' quotes back, if you want to indicate inches or feet? Is the only way to do this to turn off smart quotes?

OR, is there a secret keyboard shortcut?

The best thing is to go to the Symbol font, and get the properly angled glyphs.
Or an OT font with the correct characters.

Either way, probaby use the Glyph palette

Control+Shift+' gives you dumb quotes. Control+' gives you a prime mark. These are useful for sure when you need feet and inches.
