I'm brand new here, just joined the forums to ask this question. I tried searching for a bit but didn't see anyone with this particular issue.
So, I'm using SugarCube in Twine 2.0, and I want links to passages to be verbal responses, hence in "quotes", and I want them to be stored in variables, so that I don't have to rewrite them when they appear multiple times. If I try to use <q></q> it simply prints <q></q> in the story, rather than converting them to quotation marks. I can get it to work by wrapping the string in single quotes and then using double quotes within that string. E.g. if I write: '"hello, there"', then it will display: "hello, there".
The problem I'm having is that, if I use that method, I can't use apostrophes for contractions because they are interpreted as single quotes ending the string.
Surely there is a way to have access to all punctuation while still taking advantage of Twine's features?
Thanks for the help.
