I do not want to use MS Office autocorrect option that is changing automatically straigh quotes to curly quotes ("smart quotes").
Most of the time I prefere straight quotes, but sometimes, in a selected place, I would like to change a straight quote to a smart quote. How can I do that?
I am using MS Office 2007 PowerPoint.

Easiest way would be a find-and-replace, using Regular Expressions to check whether there is a character after the " or not to determine which direction to point the quotes.
For what it is worth, "smart quotes" are not generally supported in, for example, copy-paste operations on the Web due to lack of support for those characters - you are likely to run into errors if you try.
