Is there a keyboard shortcut to obtain a non-breaking hyphen?

December 30Hits:1

I am writing Pandoc Markdown in the gedit text editor. From time to time, I need a non‑breaking hyphen. (By the way, the hyphen in the previous sentence is one!) So far, I have been copying non-breaking hyphens from the character map which is quite cumbersome. This made me look for a quicker alternative...

Hence, my question: Is there any keyboard shortcut to obtain a non‑breaking hyphen?

Alas, modifier keys do not seem to offer any help here...

Is there a keyboard shortcut to obtain a non-breaking hyphen?

Answers

You can use this shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+U and then type 2011 followed by Space which will turn into ‑ (non‑breaking hyphen).
