Emojis don't show up: Support all emoji

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
    Can’t use certain emojis (🫀🪴🧡) as they do not show up in the Figma design file. But the emojis are displayed appropriately in the Layers sidebar.

  2. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)

  3. Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
    Anybody else having the same problem?

It’s a known limitation:

Oh I see. I guess they didn’t update their emoji set to the latest version yet.
Thanks for the fast response!

The puzzle emoji seems to be on of them that works only in the layers panel, but not in a text field.

  1. There’s been many instances where some emoji’s are rendered invisible when used as part of design. For example, :brick:

^ I can use it to name my layers and files fine but not as part of my design.

  1. Also, any emoji past like a size 18px is rendered pretty pixelated. So, I have to resort to downloading & importing .PNG for each emoji, which can be pretty time consuming & difficult to maintain.

It’s VERY common for us to use emojis in textfields during our design/documentation process. Would appreciate having access to all emojis. It’s currently about 1/3 the time I want to use one it doesn’t work. Not a show stopper but it’s a bit irritating.

Come on! You can support ALL emojis, cant you? It’s 2021?! You can do better Figma, look at your counterparts at Notion.

Is this update on Figma’s roadmap any time soon? Appreciate knowing if we can expect this for anytime in the near future. Appreciate it!
