Hey all...small announcement. Some new smiley's have been added for use in posts.:)

Most are animated smiley's...a few are static. Smiley's can definitely add little spice to a post...and let others know what sort of emotion or mood you mean to convey in a post that text-only doesn't always communicate well.

Here's a sample for your viewing pleasure:

Love these.

If I grab a hammer and emulate one of those emojis would that convince SWMBO that I need a new computer?:sick

The new emojis appear to have caused a problem. Now, every instance of the word "c*mpute" (I've substituted the asterisk to stop it occurring) is being displayed as an animated emoji. Oh dear...

That happened in my post obviously but I assumed that I had done something to trigger it.

It's a bit surprising, I must admit. Usually the code for an emoji requires something like being wrapped in colons, but this one appears to be a bit of a rogue emoji. A fine example of the fun and games can be seen in this post here (click the link to see the effect).

Where do I find these new emoji's?

(I rarely use them, and probably used to know, but my memory isn't what it used to be.....)

For anyone who doesn't know...you can find the smiley's/emoji's in the:

* New post composition window.
* Click on the 3 dots.
* Click on the "Smilies" button.

How/when can I use these new emojis in Apple Mail?
Not sure I understand.

Mac-Forums is a website on the internet running specialized forum software...Apple Mail is a application on a computer/phone/tablet. Not the same.

I was hoping I could copy one of these fro the forum software, and paste it into a mail message I will be sending using Apple Mail on my Mac Mini.

Ok I see. Try dragging from Mac-Forums to your email. I just tried it from Mac-Forums into a browser tab with Gmail open & it worked. I didn't test with Apple Mail.

Nick

p.s. This works with some Mac-Forums smilies...some do not.
