    em-dash-problems with Word 2016

    Discussion in 'Software' started by beehoney, Nov 2, 2017.

    Hi Writing-Community,


    I don’t know if it is right. On Word 2016 when I write a sentence with an em-dash and question mark. Then the program says “There must be a space!”. So, e.g. for sentences like: "My daughter—where is she?—would like to meet you."

    But I know normally there is no space. Is that also right? Or is it wrong? And when it’s wrong how can I fix this mistake on Word?

    the easiest way is to just ignore it

    That aside I wouldn't structure it like that anyway

    Can you edit the rule base, or see a list of options you can turn on and off?
    When you bring up the dialog box on that particular issue, can you click "ignore once" and "ignore rule"?
