What's up with PM9? It doesn't show any of the Central European characters when I enter them into Book Info fields and then use 'em through Auto Text option in the layout.

A bug? PM 3.1 works fine with this...

BTW, ALL the CE characters are displayed ok when entered directly in the layout (not using Book Info).
