Both Writer and Word have autocorrect functions where you can define a
key sequence that is to be changed to something else. For example, in
Writer I added space-hyphen-space and set up the autocorrect to change
it to space-en-dash-space ('cause I like an en-dash with spaces rather
than the more popular em-dash without spaces). 

So if you want an em-dash in Writer just choose a key sequence that you
would not normally type and tell the program to autocorrect it to an
em-dash. No need to enter a hex code every time you need the character.
