One of the recent feedback notes I received indicated that the CoG style-guide wants us to use these two Unicode characters in place of normally used alternatives.
After looking up these in Google search, the em-dash is (U+2014) and the elipse is (u-2026).
This still doesn’t help me figure what I need to use in my two text editors to accomplish this. I use CSIDE and Notepad++.
I also read an article that really confused me more about windows using special key sequences and Mac OS using yet something else entirely. Since I switch between a PC and a IPad to write, this only confuses me more.
Can anyone simplify how to put these two characters into my text editors?
Thank you in advance.
Edit: 2nd Solution: [quote="Vendetta,]
em-dash is hold ALT and on numpad hit 0151
ellipses is hold ALT and on numpad hit 0133
and as for CSIDE:
So in CSIDE: type a double hyphon and it will auto-change it to an em-dash or three periods for elipsis as long as auto formatting is turned on.
