Den 16 april 2012 18:16 skrev e-letter <>:

The dialogue window 'insert special character' does not show easily
en-dash (–) and em-dash (—), so had to use the unicode values (e.g.
ctrl+2013). Is there another way to select these types of characters
within LO?


You didn't mention your operating system, but if you are on GNU/Linux
you can use the compose key. Yes, I know it's not WITHIN LibreOffice,
but still…
Compose --. → – (en-dash)
Compose --- → — (em-dash)

The en-dash is usually created automatically by the auto correction
functionality, for example ”this - that” is automatically converted to
”this – that”. I'm not sure about the em-dash though.
You can easily create new abbreviations for auto correct, for example
making ” —” out of ” --- ” and so on.

Best regards
