hyphen to en dash capability

Please add the facility to change hypens into en dashes (in page number ranges especially). Several styles require this and the only way to change these at present is to detach the doc from EndNote at completion. This is problematic for a number of reasons, mostly that it means the document cannot be edited further with EndNote. I do feel that this feature should be a standard. Alternatively, EndNote could simply make all hyphens between page number ranges into en dashes, though I am unsure what the implications would be for other styles. I use SBL.

Re: hyphen to en dash capability

Agreed!

 

Since I don’t know of any styles that actually require hyphens and won’t accept en dashes (at least none that I’ve ever worked with), my workaround has been to replace all hyphens with en dashes in the Pages field in EndNote, but this is a workaround, not a solution.
