I am talking about the text input panel Emoji and symbols that could be opened thorough ctrl++Space.

It could be opened as a bubble:

or as a window:

The problem is only in the bubble mode: when I try to select an emoji (or special char), the bubble body automatically slides at the top while clicking and so this will force me select another unwanted emoji.

This happens only at the first click.

I encountered the same problem with Sierra and on two different Macs.

See this video for further details.

Please note that:

• in this video I clicked for three emojis. First and third attempts demonstrate the bug (dog and snow man), the second (cat) doesn't instead,

• this happens in every Apps such as Telegram, TextEdit, Safari, ... .

Probably it's a bug. There's some workaround?

  • Does this happen in all apps including TextEdit, Notes, Mail, Safari? – Tom Gewecke Feb 14 '17 at 12:59
  • Yes, it happens everywhere. Now add this info in the question. Thanks. – kitsune Feb 14 '17 at 13:51
  • Only use the windowed version :) Are you using a trackpad or a mouse? – Kisa Ayano Feb 25 '17 at 22:31
  • Both mouse or trackpad, indifferently. – kitsune Feb 27 '17 at 0:24
