The "right-single-quote" mark (i.e. apostrophe) in InDesign is rendering backwards, ONLY with the font that I'm using (Acme Gothic). The apostrophe is correct with other fonts, and on other Adobe products (Illustrator and Photoshop). It's specifically when using this font, and in InDesign. It's even using the correct character (’) but it's appearing backwards. It also exports backwards in a PDF as well. I'm using Adobe InDesign 2020 on a Macbook Pro.
The ’ for the font Acme Gothic has been set to Mirrored in your text frame, that’s why it is rendering backwards.
To change all instances of this, highlight it with the mouse, right-click, the choose ‘Load Selected Glyph in Find’. The Find/Change dialog opens with the selected glyph already in the Find Glyph field – its Unicode ID is 201B. To change the Glyph to the non-mirrored one, just type 2019 in the Unicode ID field . Then click Change All. It will change all instances of the mirrored apostrophe with the non-mirrored apostrophe.
Hope it helps.

Hello Ravi, I am having the same issue with the backwards apostrophe and after following your steps, it did not fix the problem. Any other suggestions?

Hi Ravi, thanks for the help. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to work ... even though Find/Replace says that the change was made, all the apostrophes remain unchanged. It works if I use it to Find/Replace with a different font, but with this specific font, it doesn't seem to switch.
Any other thoughts or suggestions?
