Search for tags with icons/emoticons out of frontmatter/yaml does not work

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a new page
  • Add via YAML a tag, like:
    • tags: [:date:/2022/04/15]
  • Activate the “Reading view”.
  • Press the tag to prefill the search text-field.

Expected result

“tag:#:date:/2022/04/15” is copied into the seach-textfield

Actual result

“tag:#/2022/04/15” is copied into the search-textfield

Works in the help vault (no plugins or themes) to copy the icon to the search field, but the tag itself is read as a series of nested tags because forward slashes are used for nesting:

Hmm ok thanks, I especially tried to disable all my plugins, but I think I forgot to restart Obsidian. I will try to find which plugin could be responsible. Thank you!

If I disable the “Twitter emoji” flag from the “Emoji Toolbar” it seems to work everything as expected.
@Angel Thank you again for the hint.
