Screenwriting mode – missing German umlaut on first line

Hi everybody!

I use Scrivener mainly for screenwriting in German and I have a problem with the display for German umlaut characters (Ä, Ö, Ü).

When I have a scene heading on a first line (first page, but also all following pages) the dots disappear. So if I write “INT. KÜCHE” (kitchen) it becomes “INT. KUCHE” which is of course still understandable but nonetheless wrong as a matter of fact.

This problem shows up in the editor and in the PDF after compile.

Happy if somebody can provide a solution for this.
