Dear Amy and Jill:

  To have the em dash (the long one ) you can do it is pressing the keys:

Ctrl + Alt + - 

   The last one is the minus operator sign on the numeric pad, make sure that 
the Num Lock key is on. You can do a global replace but beware of the drawbacks 
of doing it globally.

     Jill, the copy and paste does disappear if you do another copy and paste 
for a different character, word or symbol and if you turn off your computer.

Hope this help

thought that once something had been copied and pasted, it no longer
existed or if the computer was turned off this was lost; am I wrong?

many others I have long tried various solutions for substitutes for the
long [wide?] dash since my keyboard does not have one.  All to no
avail.  Well, I finally found a workable solution: look for the nearest
long dash and "copy" - not cut - it and then paste it where you need
it.   It is so simple I am surprised I had not heard it or read it here
and I am sure someone must have posted it but since I never saw it I
thought I would share this method with you.
