How about semi-automatic?

First, save an en-dash to the clipboard - select it, then Ctrl-C.

Now, in Edit Contents mode (or I suppose also in Story Editor), Edit > 

In the Search for: tab, check Text, fill in --
In the Replace with: tab, check Text, then Ctrl-V to put your en-dash in 
the text box.
Now, click Search, and then either Replace one by one, or Replace All.
