[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Family TreeMaker headache

I'm using Family Tree Maker 2006 with Windows XP and the English (United 
States) keyboard layout and everything is fine.  When I enter characters 
using ALT + numbers the correct character appears and stays, even if I later 
make a change to the same or any other field.
I have never used Legacy, but the thing I like about Family Tree Maker is 
the Charting Companion that came with it.  Makes printing a snap.

Greetings All,

I am still using Family TreeMaker and yes, it is a headache.

Has anyone been able to use the Character Map (to get the Alt codes) to put 
diacritical marks on letters in the data entry fields of Family TreeMaker?

I can copy and paste the letter into a field on FTM but it disappears and 
soon as I put the cursor in another data entry field.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

(I can't switch to Legacy right now as it would be changing horses in 
mid-stream. By fall or early winter, I will make that switch.)
