Emoji keyboard support on Windows 10

Steps to reproduce

While editing a note, press Win+. (windows key + period key), either click on an emoji or start typing anything.

Expected result

Either an emoji appears at the cursor, or an underlined emoji search string is displayed progressively and then replaced by the emoji when Enter is pressed (this behaviour may be observed in most Windows programs as well as in this forum’s textarea :penguin:).

Actual result

Nothing is displayed at the cursor until the emoji keyboard is closed by mouse or by clicking Escape. After that, the emojis appear.


  • Operating system: Windows 10 20H2

This looks fixed in 0.12.5
