    Cannot print an accent character in TeXnicCenter

    Hi,

    I'd like to write Mobius with the double dots in a latex document in TeXnicCenter. However, when I use the standard format for example the string:

    using M\"{o}bius inversion

    it does not print the o correctly. Can someone help me?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Which packages do you use ?

    \documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
    \usepackage{amsmath}
    \usepackage{amsfonts}
    \usepackage{amssymb}
    \usepackage{makeidx}
    \begin{document}
    \"{o}
    \end{document}

    works fine for me, with TeXmaker

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. Since you said yours was working I thought maybe my system was at fault. I just figured out I have "replace quotation marks" enabled" which causes a double quote to be replaced by two single quotes. When I disabled this, it fixed the problem.

    Hi shawsend.

    Try and improvise.

    Code:
    \mathrm{M\ddot{o}bius}
    gives

    \mathrm{M\ddot{o}bius}
