The missing Characters dilemma. (Problem with pasting or importing text to max)

Jun 17 2013 | 8:46 am

Hello, everyone

I have a strange problem with a json file I am working with
In there is a lot of text which gets displayed just fine in TextWrangler, which also tells me: Unicode UTF-8
But: funny things start to happen when i either import that json file into dict
or even copy-paste the text-part in question to a max comment box.
Randomly chosen characters are disappearing.

Even funnier:
If I select the text within the comment-box, It displays just fine.
If I then deselect the box.. missing characters.
(See pictures attached)

At first I guessed It might be something about character encoding.. Resaving with TextWrangler didn’t help. And other parts of the json (even longer entries) are working just fine.

So: did anyone ever come across that problem? What might be the problem you think?
Thanks in advance!

Attached you can find a example patcher.
Just select the text in the comment-box to see what I mean.

Thanks again!
