When I write the file name on text box "Save as...", the scandinavian letters like Å Ä Ö do not appear. Instead of them come other characters like ' ; and the file is saved with these wrong characters. Mac Min 2018, macOS Catalina (Finnish), Apple USB-keyboard with Swedish/Finnish layout (same result with Windows keyboard).

Howdy Erkki,

I just tried this myself and didn't have any problem, as you can see from the screenshot.



I tried both the Danish and Finnish keyboard layouts without any issues.

Thanks,
David

Thank you for your answer. I now have macOS 10.15.1 and the same problem still exists 5 mins ago. The problem exists also with BBEdit and with two of my own projects. In my own projects I came to conclusion that NSSavePanel may be the guilty. I have the last Xcode version installed, does it affect this? - best regards, Erkki

Howdy Erkki,

I just realized that you're dealing with Photoshop ELEMENTS.  I thought they used the same Save As dialog as Photoshop, but evidently not.  Typically, those kinds of problems are encoding issues.  What is your OS set to?  Finnish?  And you're using a standard Apple keyboard layout, right?

hello,
Yes this is Photoshop Elements 2020 installed about one week ago. My macOS 10.15.1 is the Finnish version, and the Apple usb-keyboard (with numeric pad) has the standard Finnish/Swedish layout. Also the two different Windows keyboards which I have tested have Finnish/Swedish layouts. Catalina is installed on an external ssd attached to Mac Mini 2018.
