how to stop auto correct of two back to back dashes (--)

Is there any way to stop auto correcting two back to back dashes – in Scrivener 3.0? I am documenting cloud computing commands and they use these flags all the time. How can I stop this behavior?



Look at the menu item Edit > Substitutions > Smart Dashes and Ellipses . If it’s checked (ticked), then select it to uncheck it.This will turn it off for any existing project you happen to be working in. You’ll have inspect it for each existing project.

To have this turned off for future new projects as well, select Scrivener > Preferences… and click on the Corrections tab. Uncheck “Use smart dashed and ellipses in new projects

Hope this helps!

Thank you. That worked. Once again, Silverdragon to my rescue!
