Types Of DashesTypes Of Dashes

Did you know there’s more than one dash? In Photoshop, add a standard dash for separating clusters of words by pressing the Hyphen key. To add an en dash to show duration of time (e.g., Monday-Saturday), press Option-Hyphen (PC: Alt-0150). An em dash is used to separate a thought within a sentence and can be added by simply pressing Option-Shift-Hyphen (PC: Alt-0151).
