Umlauts are not displayed correctly in different programs

I live in germany, but my locale is set to "en_US.UTF8" because I like to have everything in english.
I do not have any problems with umlauts on the machine, but when I connect with sFTP oder Samba to it, the umlauts in files are not displayed correctly.
Look at this example
The upper word is how it looks in "ssh putty" (=locally on the machine), the bottom one is from "filezilla" (from my windows host)
This is my locale
When I create a file "asd_aöü" locally on the machine (with the help of ssh - putty), it looks fine, but when I connect by samba or filezilla again the umlauts are not displayed correctly.
Do you understand my problem? What can I do?

Did you check the locale settings on your Windows machine?

  • Search for member activities - points are not displayed correctly

    Hi experts,
    I have a question concerning the search for member activities. I personalized my result list and added the field points (STRUCT.Product_ID), but there the amount of the points is always displayed as zero. When going into the details of the member activity I can see that there are points booked.
    Can anyone tell me why the points in the result list are not displayed correctly?
    Thanks and best regards

    Sometimes threads are deleted if they violate the Rules of Engagement.  If that happens, you'll lose points that were allocated to you.  Othertimes, if you broke the rules, then it's possible that points that had been awarded could have been removed - but you should check your emails (of your registered address) to verify this.  I'd guess, it's more likely you'd responded to a post that broke the rules.
    Really important
    1. Don't reply to posts that break the rules - you risk losing any points awarded and you risk wasting your time responding (which is probably more valuable). 
    2. Don't ignore rejection emails or other communications from moderators.  They are followed up, and, if warnings are ignored, then accounts will be deleted.  Recently, one poor soul's account was deleted, and they'd accrued over a 1000 points... they'd been copy and pasting from other sites and ignored moderator warnings.

  • Entity Descriptions are not displayed correctly in Combo box dropdown list

    In Web Analysis, Entity Descriptions are not displayed correctly in Combo box dropdown list when entity descriptions from HFM contains a dot(.)
    'Entity A. LTD' becomes 'LTD'
    'Entity B Inc.' becomes blank
    It seems that everything before the dot is not displayed when opening the combobox.
    It looks like it is acting like the option to show short description for entities in HR where the parent-child relation is not shown. This behaviour I don't expect for descriptions. And in my opinion is not an option in Web Analysis.
    Does anybody knows the sollution or have seen this issue before?

    This is a known issue with combo box list of values.
    Please follow this workaround:
    - Remove ComboboxLOV on Deptno
    - Create an updateable transient attribute(Say Dname) of type String
    - Define combobox lov with following values:
    List Data Source: DeptView1
    List Attribute: Dname
    List Return Values:
    Dname - Dname
    Deptno - Deptno
    UI Hints: Display Attribute - Dname
    - Edit Dname(transient attribute) and provide following groovy expression
    oracle.jbo.Key key = new oracle.jbo.Key(Deptno);
    return DeptView1.findByKey(key, 1)[0].getAttribute("Dname");- Now, you are done and observe that Dname combo box lov shows Description even on selection and change in this combo box sets the Deptno value

  • The Forms are not displaying correctly

    the Forms are not displaying correctly. Editing mode and printing mode are missing contents of notes/text field (Additional Notes, Background or Need, Project Summary). Second issue is when viewing/printing a Project Profile - Short Form, the text fields
    are shrink, they are not displayed full high to show all the text. It was working with IE9, IE10, but now IE10 and IE11 dont work.

    tested with Google Chrome and that seems to work the best in terms of viewing and printing the forms.
    Then you could try spoofing Google Chrome using a User-Agent string override and Document mode Edge.  Or open  IECompatData.xml  to see if you should have Compatibility View enabling Microsoft's list.  Or report your problem symptom and
    desired override here:

  • Permissions are not displaying correctly on Yosemite server

    My file and folder permissions are not displaying correctly on my Yosemite server when viewed from a Yosemite client.
    I have set these permissions from the server app on the server and have added local network groups for the appropriate folders on the share.  When checked from the server's finder, everything looks correct.  The server is setup for both AFP and SMB on file sharing.  I have also tried setting permissions from the server's finder and seemed to make no difference.
    When logged into from local or VPN Yosemite clients using AFP, the permissions do not show anything but postgres user and everyone group.  Even though they should have network groups such as skoogfinancial, skoogmarketing, etc.
    The server does seem to enforce the permissions correctly though a user cannot get into folders he does not have permissions for.
    Therefore, it seems the server is enforcing correctly, but a user may not understand what is going on as the permissions list doesn't list anything meaningful.

    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of this exercise is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login. Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode* and log in to the account with the problem. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows:
    Be sure your Mac is shut down.
    Press the power button.
    Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
    Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
    *Note: If FileVault is enabled under OS X 10.7 or later, or if a firmware password is set, you can’t boot in safe mode.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including wireless networking on certain Macs.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem(s)?
    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • With IE UIX buttons are not displayed correctly

    Hello there,
    We have developed an application using UIX. While browsing application using Internet Explorer I noticed that many of the buttons are not displayed correctly. Only some part of the button is displayed. Same thing happens while displaying some of the page logos and stuff. Did anyone have same problem? What's solution?

    Hi Andy,
    sometimes half of button is displayed and sometimes the whole button image is distorted. if you refresh the page, it becomes perfectly fine. sometimes nothing is displayed but if you put mouse at the place where there should be a button, you would know that there is a button...
    it happens with random buttons...
    i haven't seen this problem in mozilla. its quite frequent in IE.
    our customer is very annoyed by this problem :(

  • Scientific fluorescence figures are not displayed correctly on iPad

    I use the iPad 1 for reading scientific papers, and I figured out that some fluorescence figures are not displayed correctly. The colours are not correctly distinguished, even some colours are completely missing. Is this a limitation of the iPad display or the current version of iOS.
    I am really disappointed. So, is there any solution?
    Many thanks.
    On MacBook Pro
    On iPad 1

    I am woundering if anyone can suggest any solution? Thank you.

  • German umlauts are not shown correctly, when a received e-mail is opened the first time. What can I do?

    When I open a received e-mail the first time, German umlauts (ä, ö, ü) are not shown correctly. Instead of them there are characters like §,$. When I close the e-mails and open them again the German umlauts are shown correctly. I don't know how to solve that problem. Who can help me?

    ''Zenos [[#answer-670786|said]]''
    Fascinating. Sounds like an inconsistency between the encoding being used and the encoding being declared. I can't think why it should change when you re-open the message, unless Thunderbird is adding a correct encoding declaration.
    (Most users complain about it working in the opposite direction; messages stored as drafts often restore with damaged "special" characters such as smart quotes, accented characters and umlauts.)

    my problem is webpages are not shown correctly you can see in images
    i use chrome Version 41.0.2272.118 dev-m   it is shown correctly after certain refreshes please help me this is very irritating.

    Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum.
    Is this only happening with the HP forum site or with many web-sites ?
    Can you try with different browsers - IE, Firefox ?
    Please, re-install Chrome and install/run the latest stable Chrome release:
    Google uses Windows internal settings for Internet. These instructions refer to IE but will also affect some Chrome settings. Please, follow them:
    If the above does not help, please check with your ISP (Internet service provider) about DNS issues and your DNS settings or any other issues.
    Check with your antivirus software or firewall (disable protection, disable web-protection, disable firewall or IPS protections and test)

  • Forms values are not displayed correctly

    This is happening on the client view. I have a custom form and after some Windows updates on user's laptop, the text field values started stopping to display in the form. If I click on View mode then the text values shown and change back to Edit the form
    now text values show up in the text field.
    Another thing is when trying to print the view out, text values are not shown up at all. I tried to upgrade user to IE11 and same issue. Using Firefox then text values are shown in print preview but not in Editing. I don't want users to use different browser
    rather than IE.
    Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.

    Since the issue happens after some Windows Updates, I would suggest the user log on another machine and see if the issue persists. If the issue only happens on this laptop, you can manually uninstall the update patch you doubt to test
    the issue. Go to Control Panel->Programs and Features->View installed Updates->”right click” and “uninstall”.
    Meanwhile, add the SharePoint sites to a trusted zone in IE settings.

  • Helppages are not displayed correctly

    I want to display html files which are generated (docbook). When I view the pages with a browser, they look good, but inside my application they look different:
    all text is centered, the images have the wrong size and some background colours are wrong.
    Is it possible that there are some problems with the stylesheets? The background colours are set with stylesheets, but the size of the images and the text position not.
    Has anybody an idea?

    I solved all formatting problemswhich appeared in my project.
    The javahelp browser has some problems with stylesheets. I had stylesheet-definitions like these:
    text-align: justify
    color: #fff
    While Internet Explorer displays the page correctly, in the javahelp browser the text is centered and the color is different. So you have to set the text-align to "left" if you want it to be "left" and all colors have to be in the form #ffffff (2 digits per color).
    Another strange thing: My html-files contained images with only one size-parameter (width="200") because they were generated automatically and the original file (xml-file) contained a scaling factor in the image-tag (scale="50"). While Internet Explorer adjusts the height of the image fitting to the given width, the javahelp browser displays the image with the correct width but always with a height of 10 pixels. After I deleted the scale-tag in the xml-file, the images were displayed correctly (because they already had the correct size and didn't have to be stretched).

  • Rendered parts are not displayed correctly

    I use Premiere Pro CS4, and i have a problem regarding the "render work area"-function (i'm not sure if this is the correct english name).
    When i look at the preview of my sequence, everything is displayed properly (like this), but when i hit "render work area, the result looks like this (the source file does not influence this). And after clicking on the preview, it looks like this.

    Welcome to the forum.
    What is the CODEC used in your source footage? Is it from FRAPS, or similar (looks like it's from a game)?
    If it is from a video-capture program, like FRAPS, I would search this forum for the word "FRAPS," and read some of the articles. Some offer great tips on preparing that sort of footage for editing. HERE is one of those articles.
    If not from a video-capture program, then let us know what the CODEC is please.
    Good luck,

    Hi, Saro,
    I have taken a std. report to customize, and the name of the report is Asset Retirements from Fixed Asset module.
    From the existing base query, i have added some query to customize it.
    I have summed  the cost column in the report using summary column.
    For example, im passing a parameters which displays 5 lines in the report output. Im getting the cost value correctly in all the 5 lines, but when i tried to sum all the 5 lines, it is taking the first line of cost value and it is not summing the cost value of all the 5 lines in the report. I dont know why this problem occurs.
    Summary column should be place one level up of the query and set the following values under summary
    Reset As
