Dash not showing up

I’m working on a font and just updated from Glyphs Mini to Glyphs 2. I’m trying to create a - in the font (like one you would use in a phone number) and it’s not working. I’ve created all the hyphens and the minus glyphs, but still it won’t even type a - (the key on a macbook that is shared with the underscore). Is there a different glyph with a different name besides the hyphens or minus I should be using?

Unicode 002D

I found a fix in your article “Getting Your Glyph Names Right”. I created a new glyph and named it uni002D which translated it to “hyphen” and now it all works great!

Thanks so much.

Adding hyphen directly should have done the trick just like that.
