This post is a double-dipping kind of post: Bug and Plug-in Request.
But yeah, I have emojis that I want to use (like the map emoji here), but some of them keep showing up as the Unicode version that Windows recognizes (upper left hand corner).
At first I thought this might have just been Windows, but I was able to test this on other apps, notably Windows Sticky Note app, Chrome and also Firefox: Chrome and the Sticky Note app were able to render whereas Firefox wasn’t. I suppose the Firefox thing is a problem related to Firefox, but if this is respective to each app, then I guess this can be fixed in Obsidian.
- For Obsidian to render these Unicode icons as emojis.
- A plug-in to turn that feature off (or on), if someone doesn’t want that particular feature.
NOTE: Obsidian only renders some emojis as Unicode, but not all.
Which installer version do you have?
I will try and update that and see if anything changes.
Sometimes an updated set of emoji is available with newer version of electron/chrome
BTW, I am on windows and the world map emoji displays as an emoji for me
which version of win 10 do you have?
K so the update didnt change anything.
And I have version 2004 for Home edition.
A strange development: it works on with the Help vault. I just used it because it has the default CSS.
Edit: It appears to work for the default CSS, but not for custom CSS (or the ones I’ve used, and I’ve tested 3 so far).
Its associated with the font. When I switch to default font, it works, but I don’t know whats going on here. Maybe the encoding, but nothing is working for me at the moment.
I found a fix: through the
root section in the css. I don’t know why this works, though.
I typically just change the font family for the
html, body but now I would have to change the font through the root and the emojis stay the same. Not sure why this solution works, though.
