"Combining characters" from fonts with IPA symbols

I posted about this as a reply to a question elsewhere, but then it occurred to me that it could be its own topic.

Does anyone know a way to make International Phonetic Association "combining characters" appear correctly in Canvas?  Single characters generally do, like the aforementioned schwa: [ə] and others I use for Spanish like ʧ ʝ ð β ɣ, among others.  But the combining characters don't come out right at all. Unfortunately, what's supposed to be

comes out as n̪    au̯.to   al̟.to, with the combining characters askew from the main character.

A partial workaround I use is to just write out my characters in Word, screenshot them, and embed them in the rich text editor like I did above.  But there's no way to make the symbols work in answer options or elsewhere where I can't insert an image file.  Ideally, I'd just be able to use the combining characters.

Does anyone know of a way to get these characters to come out right? 

Thanks,

Keith
