Bug Description

My Windows is running in German and I'm working with the German version of KiCad 5.1.2.

While adding a networklabel in Eeschema I noticed the characters on my keyboard were swapped to English keyboard layout. So I rechecked if everything else works fine and indeed it's only in Eeschema that I need to use shift+ß to create an _ .

Is this still the case with the latest stable release 5.1.4? I'm guessing it is but I have no way of testing this.
