n-dash between page numbers

Post by nturcan » Wed Jan 15, 2020 2:32 pm

Hello,
Is it possible to have automatically n-dash instead of simple dash between page numbers? For example, instead 50-51, 50–51 (n-dash is a little bit longer).

Thank you,
Nicolae

Yes. In the format, use en dash after the p instead of dash for page range: p–

Thank you, Jon.
It works for pages of articles inserted in Bookends in "Pages" field, but it does not work for cited pages in the footnotes.

I believe for cited pages Bookends uses whatever you typed between the pages, @1-2 or @1–2 (the second is an en dash, although in this font it looks similar to the dash).
