I am trying to do a simple workflow that sends an email with information; it could be as simple as this:
But when I receive then mail, the encoding goes bad
I have been wondering if it is because I sues the Visual Layout tool
But the “strange” thing is, that it seems fine in the Browse tool:
For information I am running on Alteryx Designer 2019.1.4.57073 and my Code Page is set to be Unicode UTF-8.
Is there any settings that I might have missed, or is this a bug?

Go to Solution.
visual layout doesnt accept special caracters since its coded differently. You have to use html entities. For example:
so in your case
ö -> ö
This will solve the problem
Note: tried it out, doesnt work lol.Seems only accepts basic ASCII characters.
Well. as it turned out, I am not the only one, that have faced this problem.
So a big thanks to Alteryx Support, to be able to point me i a better direction.
This post "How to show letters like ë, ü and ï in the Visual Layout Tool and Email Output Tool" seem spot on to this issue, and @engdell provided a solution in this post "Visual layout not supporting scandinavian characters anymore"
The "trick" is to do a replace on the Layout, as @engdell wtites, it is not pretty, but it works
So by adding these replace of the "weird" characters
The mail received now looks much better
The new workflow with the "fix" has been attached.
