### Adding new symbols to texmaker

Hi,

There are some default symbols in texmaker. But i want to add these two symbols
\textquotedblleft

\textquotedblright
.
I mean instead of typing these two symbols each time, i only select. How is it possible? I searched much but cannot find

Thanks

You could define your own shortcuts (macros) in the code. That's independent of the editor, and may shorten both writing and reading. And you can redefine such macros any time, for example if you would decide to change the actual quote sign (font) or double to single or straights.
