It's not the fonts. I have the same problem. The only solution I've
come up with so far is to input those characters by copy & paste or
via the character selector (or however it's called). If I have to
write more than a few words, I always carry a string consisting of
"???????" around with me, so I do not have to open the dialog window
each time.

It would really be nice to be able to input those the normal way again.
