Em dash shortcut (—)

Why it's useful: Quicker shortcut than typing Alt + 0151 (fingers don't have to migrate over to numbers pad)
Who would benefit: All grammatically savvy and efficient Front users!
How would it work: It could operate exactly how it does in Outlook or Microsoft Word. When you type a word like "Example" then follow it with two short dashes "--", after typing the next word like "helps" then hitting the spacebar, the two short dashes "--" then become an em dash "—"

So "Example--helps" or "Example-- helps" becomes "Example—helps"
