Subject: FLASH: em dash on PC in Flash
From: Pete Grant
Date: Sun, 30 Jan 2000 22:22:18 GMT

How in the world do you get an em dash while typing in a text box in Flash
on a PC? On a Mac, it's just Control-Shift-hyphen.

On a PC the standard way in some programs is to hold down the Alt key and
type 151 on the number pad. In Word 2000 PC, it's Ctl-Alt numpad hyphen (or
Insert -> Symbol -> choose the em dash), but when you paste that into Flash
it becomes a regular hyphen.

I could fire up my Mac and make a FLA file with a single em dash, store it
as a symbol, (then I can always get it by Import Library...!!! Geez.), but
is there a *simpler way*?
