(in what is probably a separate bug, the system character viewer can't be used to insert emoji characters into Writer even on 4.3 - the characters of the attached example were copied from the web)

I can insert the emoji in LO 4322 via Insert > Special character, the grid display is really weird though, all of the icons are shifted up and to the left of center.

the emoji are no longer displayed in the test document. The character grid shows the emoji as for 4322, but insertion just leads to blank insert, i.e. the emoji are not drawn on the page
Norbert: do you think your change might have been responsible for this ?

Bug 92940 - many Emojis do not work
I can see the LOLcats in the sample document in 5.1 and add characters from Insert > Special Charcter.
BUT I can get a LO crash if I try to use the OS emoji & symbols viewer to insert emoji, though it is not reproducible and I can insert other high-range unicode like alchemical symbols: 🜢🜣
I'm running 10.11 public beta, and Writer 5.1 has general problems so not sure if the crash is relevant.

I see the LOLcats in the appended test document.
Using the Emoji shortcuts works for me too.
