I am having a problem replicating this issue with 3.5.6 64-bit DEB install on Ubuntu 10.04.

I type '123 and get 123.
Well if I type '123+234 I get the quote.

I think this makes sense. In the first case you are entering what could be a number, and the (unsmart) quote mark indicates that you want just text. The second case is different. If you entered "123+124" (without the preceding quote), you would get that text, not two numbers (still less the single number 247). So your preceding quote cannot be intended to suppress the interpretation as a number and is retained literally as part of the text.

I do have the problem with finding "Custom Quotes" as an option. There a "Localize Options" that show options for quotes though.

Apologies!  You are quite right: I was talking rubbish about where this now is.
