Direct speech in English

The program continually tries to correct direct speech punctuation. For example: ‘Do you love me?’ asked Alice. For every instance of this type ‘said’ is highlighted even though it should not have a capital letter because there is a sentence within a sentence. The same problem occurs with exclamation marks. Can this be fixed?

Thanks, I have just fixed this. The fix should be online later tonight or tomorrow.

Brilliant. I’m surprised it could be fixed so quickly. Well done.
