I just switched from OS 10.9 to OS 10.14, and the character viewer (aka "Show Emoji & Symbols") looks like this:

enter image description here

Where have all the other Unicode blocks (e.g. Greek and Coptic, Cyrillic, Georgian, Phonetic Symbols) gone? How do I get them back?

(Also, what do I tag this as? keyboard and character are the only two suggestions, they don't seem appropriate, but I'm out of ideas…)

Click the three dots ••• menu at the top right.

Click Customize List…

Scroll down to the ones you want, select them.

    Right at the bottom, quite well hidden, is also Unicode itself, which then gives you access to the whole lot.
