Card type filter doesn't show cards of this type when name contains umlauts

In Anki 2.1.15 (442df9d6), running on macOS Mojave (10.14.6) , you can filter by card type in the sidebar. I see however no cards for certain types, although there should be plenty of them. I guess it is related to umlauts like ä, ö, ü in the card type name. As soon as I rename "Lückentext" (German for "cloze text") to "Lueckentext" it shows the cards of this type).

    I suspect if you rename it back again it will work - the encoding probably didn't match in the past.

    This doesn't help unfortunately. When I rename the type back, the cards disappear for this filter: note:Lückentext

    Ok, I think I know what the problem is. Thanks for the report, I've added it to the todo list.

    This should be resolved in the latest alpha (but you may want to wait until it enters beta testing):
