How to properly type a dash into Word:
- Type the word you want before the dash
-WITHOUT SPACING, type a double hyphen (--)
-WITHOUT SPACING AGAIN, type the word you want after the dash
-Finally, hit the space button
This post is NOT about how to properly use a dash. Perhaps I'll do that one later. (One tip is not to use it where you would use a semicolon.)
Note that this "how to" is for Word. It could also work in other word processors but it certainly doesn't work in this IE browser I'm using. Not sure if it would work in any others.
Hope I've been some help!
Peace, love, and happy writing,
