#29287 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Single apostrophe converted to left quote incorrectly when text bolded

In the string


if Cook is bolded, and not the apostrophe and the s, then the apostrophe is converted to a left quote, instead of a right quote.

A clearer example of how this is used is below.

Australian fashion editor Christine Centenera's street style is always on point.

I imagine this will happen for any formatting of the string where it occurs right before the apostrophe s.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In a new post, in visual editor, type the word "Cook's"
  2. Highlight the string "Cook" and bold it, using the tool.
  3. Preview the post
