…should work with 'search and replace' inside the 'story editor' (it's one of the rare reasons to use it…)
as you have different quote marks, you need multiple runs of the replacing process.

…and you should replace your strange ellipses (points with spaces between them) with real ellipses!

Okay, I'm a little slow on the uptake, I admit that. I have finally figured out how to use the Text Editor Search and Replace function properly.  I have purged all of the odd ellipses, and I am now going to work on all of the [space]-[space]s.  Next I will swap out all of the single and double apostrophes that should be quotations.  This may not be a literary masterpiece, but by the time I'm done, it'll be a showpiece of technically correct punctuation!
