If you have "Other Input Sources" available at the top right of your login screen, select the one called Unicode Hex Input. This can be used to input emoji (or any other character) into the password field, as long as you know the Unicode Hex number of the character. This number can be found in the Character Viewer or on the internet. Some items you find ...

The difference is the rendering engines for the browser windows. We know Safari renders the character set differently than Chrome. But the Window UI elements (the tabs in Chrome) are okay. That's our biggest clue. The window UI elements are likely (emphasis on likely, I may not be correct here) all being rendered by the OS. So they get the full OS-level ...

Since you have Filevault - that makes your situation precarious and a bit delicate. Some good news, Apple has disabled emoji entry in the password pane for 10.11 El Capitan - I can't paste or get emoji in the Users & Groups preference pane. Apple's official manner to get past this is to click the ? in the password field and reset your password. If you ...

I solved it by the solution Apple Support suggested to do, here are the steps I did: Install OS X on an external drive from Recovery mode (Cmd + R while starting). Boot from the external drive. Install the Hex/Emoji keyboard to be able to type the relevant character. Go to Disk Utility, choose the locked disk. Go to File -> Turn Off Encryption. Enter your ...

Go to the Edit menu, submenu Substitutions, then uncheck Emoji.

You can use the Chrome extension Chromoji. It's a workaround that will replace emoji with embedded images in web pages.

First, in System Preferences, under the Keyboard tab of the Keyboard Preference Pane, be sure Show Keyboard and Character Viewers in menu bar is checked. Then, from the Keyboard menu in the menu bar, select Show Character Viewer. In the Character viewer pane, select Emoji. When you select an Emoji, on the right side of the pane, you get a large graphic of ...

There's also a list on my web site, that I just made. The list is viewable using a browser with emoji font support; this includes Safari.

Creator of Divvy here. I'm not sure why Divvy can't record this shortcut in the UI, but you can force Divvy to use this shortcut: Quit Divvy. Launch Terminal.app and paste this command, on one line, and press enter: defaults write com.mizage.direct.Divvy globalHotkey -dict keyCode 49 modifiers 4352 Also, paste this command, on one line, and press enter: ...

Adding to bmike's answer, if you can't do any of that, and don't have a recent backup, you might try connecting the disk to another computer, and mounting the volume to save your files. You can apparently do it with both mac, windows and linux.

You can change the shortcut from System Preferences: Either three periods or an ellipsis character should work. You can disable the shortcut by modifying ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist: defaults write -g NSUserKeyEquivalents -dict-add 'Special Characters...' '\0' Quit and reopen applications to apply the changes made with the defaults ...

I think you just need to Collapse the Character Viewer by clicking the button next to the search field. http://support.apple.com/kb/PH13867

Run the following command (source) in Terminal: defaults write com.apple.messageshelper.MessageController SOInputLineSettings -dict-add "automaticEmojiSubstitutionEnablediMessage" -bool false Then restart Messages.app.

This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but it should actually work, which is an advantage. Create a service in Automator. The service takes no input. Two actions. First action: Run AppleScript Here's the script: on run {input, parameters} tell application "Google Chrome" to activate tell application "System Events" to tell application ...

When you're in iOS, you can also turn on VoiceOver and it'll read the names of the Emoji as you move around the keyboard.

The button in the upper-right corner of Character Viewer was the culprit. If I summon Character Viewer and click it, Character Viewer shrinks: From then on, further presses of control+command+space summon the pop-up panel instead. As to how I got to the full Character Viewer, opening Character Viewer from the menu bar Input menu (which can be turned on ...

Open the Settings app. Tap on General. Tap on International. Tap on Keyboard. Tap on Add New Keyboard. Tap on Emoji. To switch to it on the keyboard, tap the globe icon between 123 and the microphone icon. I'd say that's easier than downloading a third-party anything on Android. Plus it was included already 2 years ago with iOS 5.

For font making the common OS X tools are FontLab, FontForge, and Glyphs. I understand the Color Emoji font uses png color bitmaps in two sizes in a proprietary “sbix” table, but have not yet seen info on how to make that table.

I think iWork has not yet been updated to support the Apple Color Emoji font. The vast majority of the special characters that are monochrome work fine - you might try the old way of specifying a font directly - Symbola has emoticons that might work until Keynote gets updated.

You can try holding down on the emoji you want and see if it brings up a menu to pick the skin color like this: That feature is mainly only available on the more "human" looking emojis. Doing this will now set the default of that emoji to the color you chose, so I guess you could go through all of them and pick the one you want and they should stay as ...

The only workaround I've found is to use accessibility zoom; old man style. The problem persists in Yosemite 10.10.3 with the new Emoji picker.

You might be able to remove Apple's Color Emoji font, but you cannot remove it with FontBook. Instead, go to /System/Library/Fonts/ and drag "Apple Color Emoji.ttf" to the Trash. You must authenticate yourself as an administrator to do this. I haven't tested this, and I don't know if your computer will catch fire.

You can go to Settings > General > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard ... and select "Emoji" from the list. Then, in order to access the emojis on your keyboard, tab this "globe" icon:

No, this is not possible. You can quickly switch to a specific keyboard by holding down on the keyboard language button and sliding your finger to the specific keyboard. Also, the keyboard order is always fixed, so you know to double-tap the keyboard language button to go to a specific keyboard from another specific keyboard.

You could use ssh, telnet, vnc/rdp, Back To My Mac or similar methods, provided they are enabled and/or available. Also you could login using the default guest account or any regular user account, if available. Then: Execute the CLI Terminal.app; type passwd <username>; enter ⎆/return ⏎; (where <username> is the name of the account you're ...

This all seems to be for older OS's I have run the terminal command but for Yosemite it looks like just assign the name to "Emoji & Symbols" for all apps. Would be nice to not assign any shortcut to this and remove it but you can't save no shortcut and it will not let me save and then delete the shortcut (that probably wouldn't work anyway. At least it ...

When you add the Emoji-keyboard on iOS (Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard > Emoji), it automatically collects the recently used emoticons on the first tab at the bottom (the clock icon). The same goes for Messages.app on OS X; when you open the Emoji-selection from the smiley-face in the input box, it shows the ...

Go to Settings > General > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard and choose Emoji. The full range of available emoji will become available through the 'globe' icon to the right of the '123' icon.

iOS shows the folder name when you search for an app that's stored within a folder as opposed to lying on the springboard main screens. Any chance someone punked you by making a clever named folder and placing these exact apps inside that folder? You can be sure your phone is fine by making a folder and controlling which apps are stored in that folder as ...

If they are using real Unicode emoji, you cannot see them without the Apple Color Emoji font, which only works in 10.7, or possibly by downloading and installing a black/white font that has them, like Symbola or Quivira. Unicode emoji were only standardized in October of 2010 and I think there are various apps which may not recognize them anyway. Here is ...
