[DOCX ->EPUB] em-dash converts to triple minus

Windows 10 1703, Calibre 64 bit 3.29

em-dashes '' are being converted to triple minus hyphen '---'

Don't think I changed any settings

Sample attached

Can anyone confirm?

The only way I end up with the triple dash is having "UnSmarten punctuation" enabled:

- that was it! How on earth did it get changed.

I didn't change it between Thursday's Configuration backup where it is unchecked and Friday's where it is checked - but I did install version 3.29 between the two.

I also lost some Editor Keyboard Shortcut customisations Ψ²
