This is a strange one.

I use Emojis in WebDirect and I thought it was working when I developed it but testing it again and it doesn't. The '⬅️' and '➡️' Emoji work fine but the '↔️' and 'ℹ️' Emojis look very different (like they do in FileMaker Pro on Windows).

I'm using FileMaker Server 19.2.1 accessed via Chrome 89.

 

Any ideas?

I think I've found the issue. On Chrome/Edge those Emojis don't display properly - even though they do in Emojipedia, and in Firefox.

Not sure if there's a workaround apart from using different Emojis that work 😒.

I suspect it is a font issue, but how can that be rectified in Web Direct? The only way I can think is to use a web viewer which would cause massive slowdown in this solution.

Also I couldn't get the Emojis to display correctly in Chrome in https://typezebra.com, though they did in Firefox so not sure that'd even fix it.

If it is a font issue, then it cannot be rectified in WebDirect. If the HTML specifies the correct character, but the font displays the wrong glyph, you need to either replace the font file or tell your browser to use another font (assuming the page itself does not dictate a specific font).
