Em-Dash & En-Dash preview not working (0.8.13)

Inserting two hyphens (--) used to convert to an en-dash when previewed and three hyphens (---) converted to an em-dash. This used to not occur and the hyphens were correctly rendered as their respective dashes.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new document
  2. Type anything and separate the words/numbers with -- or ---
  3. Switch to preview mode

Expected result

You should see an en-dash (–) or and em-dash (—) where the hyphens used to be.

Actual result

Instead you still see -- or ---.

I believe this changed a a few releases back when we switched from markdown-it to remark.

Okay! Thanks for the reply
