Well, that font EurofontC is a Cyrillic knock-off of Eurostile. You could replace it with real Eurostile (which most certainly has the u-with-umlaut) and there'd be no visual difference. However, if your client has insisted that you use EurofontC, then a) your client is a fool, and b) you're going to have to use some pretty poor techniques to fake up those umlauts. These techniques are really fragile (composition by a simple change in font size! among dozens of other potential flaws) so maybe yo...

So it means that the ü, ä, ö glyphs do not exist in this font. What do you see in the glyph ânel when you select one of the highlighted character?

 

How can I appear the hidden signs not using anather font.

It will not be possible if the glyphs are missing.

However, once you've made this monstrosity, you can copy it to the clipboard and replace all properly encoded u-with-umlauts with "Clipboard Contents, Formatted" and all you'd have to do would be to correct the post-umlaut kerning. I still think that the only way forward is to use a different font, but You Do You (or what your client wants, if that's what you have ot do).
