I am working in Open Office Writer 3.3.0 and I have come across something a bit odd. When I write a semi-mathematical formula my "-" gets replaced by a "–", a slightly longer dash, and I cannot seem to turn it off in the autocorrect. I am not sure how to. the dash "-" does not appear in the autocorrect table of any language, whereas double-dash "--" does.

Any ideas how to disable this?

Tools - Autocorrect options - Replace tab, probably top of the list. While I'm at it, the dash is fine for hyphenating but the minus sign in maths should be that longer character that OOo so thoughtfully provides. Wink
