Special characters not showing up in Scribus

ivihy:
I have the same problem by using the german character "ẞ".
I tried to test the character with the police I choose in libre office, and it works. However, when I write the character in scribus, I get this white square...
Thank you for your help !

Yes, that's because LibreOffice has a mechanism that finds a font that contains the "ß" character and uses that instead, although it doesn't tell you that it's a different font when you highlight it. (I know… pretty confusing.)

Conclusion: Find another font for either just the ß character or for the whole text you're using in Scribus, because the latter doesn't have that easy automatic replacement mechanism.

Cheers!
