[Scribus] keyboard shortcuts in Story Editor

Something I just discovered today, using (Linux) was that, even 
though I can set a keyboard shortcut for an em-dash, it will not work in 
Story Editor, though it does work in Edit Contents mode on the main 
screen. Since I've never tried this before, I don't know if it's a 
feature that was lost or never existed, yet seems intuitively that it 
should be there.

I also wondered if there should be what we might call a "smart" shortcut 
insertion with this, so that in addition to using a shortcut to make the 
em-dash it will also add a following space. I'm not sure I can think of 
a situation where I wouldn't want a space after an em-dash.
