    How do you make an em dash?

      You just have to use two hyphens (--).

      If you're on a mac, press the shift key, option key, and the hyphen key all at the same time. 

      On a PC, press Alt+0151

        Been a long time, I'd forgotten about the alt-numpad.

        ☺ ☻ ♥ ♦ ♣ ♠ • ◘ ○ ◙  (the first 10)

        I should break out the old DOS manual. big_smile

    You can copy/paste this one for now,  –

    You can also go into text capsule editor and click the omega sign, you'll discover all sorts of interesting other symbols.

    The editbot doesn't like two hyphens (--), at least in titles. It replaces them with the em dash.

    On a PC, Alt+0151 only works if the numbers are entered via the numeric keypad (e.g. the number keys across the top of the keyboard won't work).
