Generally, I personally prefer to just type (or copy-paste) the umlaut
(ö) if possible; and use an encoding like utf-8 (the default) that
supports it, of course.
Regarding your problem: did you make sure that Format > Smart Quotes is
set to None. Otherwise the program will convert \" (backslash-double
quote) into \'' (backslash-single quote-single quote) as it replaces "
by the "correct" TeX commands for closing quotation marks, ' '.
