For GNOME users: Have you set up a compose key?

(If not, you should; it's fantastic. My use case is in a reply.)

I've never heard of compose keys before, but the only other language I know is German and I don't think compose keys will help me too much there


@morxemplum I just posted my use case; maybe read it and see. The main use is for typing special characters—like em dashes.

@benjaminhollon @morxemplum
I change the em dash sequence to just - -, because I rarely ever need an en dash.

@mattdm @morxemplum True, that works! I Do use en dash, for citing quotations, but I could probably switch that to something else; say -.
