When I write emails and articles, I often have to use a long dash
- character not to be confused with the hyphen
- character. Normally, what I end up doing is that I type two consecutive union strokes
- and hit the
Space key, which ends up replacing the two hyphens with the long dash.
However, when publishing articles in browser-based editors, this does not always work – as with the publisher's publication here – so I have to type the double dash of union +
Space elsewhere, as in a fake email, copy the long dash from there and paste it here. It's very annoying of course.
I would like a shortcut to enter the long dash character directly.
