    Basic pages question
    Does anyone know if there's a way to get a dash in Pages? In Word, if you hit hyphen twice -- and continue to type it turns into a dash, but I can't find how to do this in Pages; anyone know?

    Pressing option + shift + - (minus key) creates a dash in pages.
    If I'm not confusing a dash with something else.
