# [OS X TeX] Umlauts won't print

Thank you, Herb. I had to go back in time indeed but now it compiles
correctly. However, the sourcecode appears weirdly wrong, even if the
compiled document is right. For instance, where the source reads "Vgel",
the pdf document reads correctly "Vögel". Should I just leave it be?

I would now introduce changes in the text, writing with a german
keyboard. Will that be all right?

Thank you,

Manuel

If most/all of you files are in MacOSRoman (applemac for the inputenc package) you can change the default got TeXShop in TeXShop–>Preferences and change the default encoding (BEFORE opening the file) to Western (Mac OS Roman. Alternatively, if you use different encodings in different files, you can open the file with the File->Open dialogue AND THEN place the line

I looked for but did not find a solution. Probably the magic words have changed. Is there any helping wizard?
