Description tommy27 2015-10-03 06:47:10 UTC
Created attachment 119228 [details]

this is a spin-off of Bug 94655 - Emoji not Visible in Exported PDF

this is about the display of emojis in an .odt file
the .PDF export issues shoul be discussed in the other report


- load attachment 119151 [details] in different LibO releases
- compare with screeshot

correct behaviour is the one in LibO where all 3 emojis are correctly displayed

buggy behaviour happens in where no emoji is shows and in a recent alpha build where only the phone emoji is missing

this is a 5.0.x regression, partially solved in 5.1.x

I have shocking announcement to make: it depends on the zoom level in 5.0!
Actually in 5.1 all the 3 emojis are displayed no matter how I zoom it.

On OS X 10.11 the emoji display without issue on both 5.0.2 and 5.1alpha, irrespective of zoom level ;-)

hi there. I don't see the phone emoji in LibO (x64)

I'll retest later with a more recent daily build but I wonder if my issue here is a side effect of Bug 92940 - many Emojis do not work

please Beluga and Iandol, would you please take a look at that bug and compare my screenshot in  attachment 117448 [details] ?

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, phone appears like a rectangle, the 2 other emojis are ok.
Does it need some specific fonts?
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2015-10-07 21:16:21 UTC
Typing manually U+0260E makes a phone appear.
What's the Unicode character used in the doc for the phone?

It seems, this is the Unicode Character 'TELEPHONE RECEIVER' (U+1F4DE). The other characters are Unicode BMP characters, so this issue seems to be an automatic font replacement issue of the non-BMP characters (the text font is Graublau sans, and likely that font doesn't contain these pictograms).

Believe this was fixed on Windows for work on bug 71603, will be available in 5.3.0

Could folks on Windows check with a post 20161102 master.

For other OS, not sure--do you have a font with coverage of the Code Point? Or is it related to bug 90043 where only the system font is being used for the AutoCorrect options replacement glyphs.

I confirm it's fixed too under Win 8.1 x64 using latest 5.3.x daily build
