(default: with space)

 

Dashes (hyphens or en-dashes) may be set according to two traditions:

 

1) In Danish public service stations subtitles there is always a space after dialog dashes:

 

- I love you.

- Vice versa.

 

And before/after continuation dashes:

 

I'm sure he is a nice man -

 

- but I still don't like him.

 

 

2) Some, however, prefer to drop the space to gain an extra character:

 

-I love you

-Vice versa.

 

And:

 

I'm sure he is a nice man-

 

-but I still don't like him.

 

The choice made will be reflected in the Toggle dash and merge/split routines.
