I'm trying to use VisualEditor on dewiki, but the special characters menu (as shown after clicking the Omega icon) does not contain any dash at all. This seems to be one of the most important symbols editors need for their work.

Well, the need for an en dash may be stronger on dewiki, but in the dewiki special characters menu, I cannot find any dash character at all. And I don't think there's any Wiki that doesn't use any kind of dash. However, I do not know whether the menu varies from Wiki to Wiki, and/or if this is a local configuration issue and/or if there's a thought behind it (e.g. Wikis should use MediaWiki:Visualeditor-quick-access-characters.json because the relevant symbols will differ among Wikis), etc. But at any rate it's important the symbol is made available on dewiki.
