How to add Shortcut Key Combinations to Keyboard Customization

I want to assign "Ctrl+-" and "Alt+-" to macros that insert an en-dash and an em-dash, respectively, in all LO modules.

By default "Ctrl+-" is assigned in Writer to insert a soft hyphen and in Calc to delete cells, but as I rarely use these functions, I'm fine with reassigning the key combinations.

The problem is that "Alt+-" doesn't appear in the list of Shortcut Keys; same for "Alt+Shift+-", "Ctrl+Shift+-", and Ctrl+Alt+Shift+-". Why? Can I add them? How?
