Encoding unique characters issue

I write fantasy, so my proper names often have strange accents, like a dot above the X or O or S. I’m probably just inept, but here’s the thing: I can’t figure out why, when I paste a word into Google fonts, the word looks great. But when I use the same font and the same word in Scrivener, it looks wrong. Allow me to take a few screenshots to show you what I mean: you’ll notice that the circled words on the right, in Google Fonts, look correct (i.e., consistent font), but on the left, in Scrivener, those words do not. Even though it’s the same font at the same size, etc. Any ideas why this is the case? Or how I can fix it?

Thanks!

Dunno if bumps are legal, but… no one?
