Hi all.

I notice smileys were "squashed" making difficult to idenify which were which...

btw you experts - can anyone tell me in a non-geeky way - how and are we allowed to load smiley on here? I notice sites offering other free smileys with codes, click xxx to save, paste by clicking yyy, but when I tried putting one on post on Community thread just came up with webby address....


Hi @Mi-Amigo 

Have you tried a straight copy and paste? ie right click copy and then paste on your post. Like this

Thanks @Cleoriff 

Just to confirm... I find smiley, right click on it on website so it copies but (and I am being really thick) how do I paste in post on here - do I use any of the tool in the bar above post?)....

No you don't need to use anything above @Mi-Amigo 

Just  right click copy and right click paste.

Dont worry if it comes up with an error when you try to post, ignore that and click post again and it will go through the 2nd time with no problem. wink

Nothing thick about you at all.

I found this out by asking questions a few years back.

As @Bambino  once said to me when I first joined the forum "the only stupid question is the one you never ask".

I have never forgotten that. Smiley Wink

Thank you @Cleoriff 

I love quotations and I`m going to add that one by @Bambino to my list of favs... It is spot-on

Now known as "squishies" Cry LOL

 

Oh and on smartphone, as shown top right below, the all-important "Quote" button is still partially obscured by the preceding button/tab, Preview.

Re: Emoji = some are OK, some are 'squashed'

This thread was started over a month ago and absolutely no improvement to the emoji situation. In fact the 'new ones' are showing a deterioration this morning. (please note the writing 5th row down)

This is on PC using FF.

Any news on a fix @Marjo  @Martin-O2  @EmilieT ?

Re: Emoji = some are OK, some are 'squashed'

Sorry we didn't come back to you on this one earlier @Cleoriff! We're waiting to hear back from Lithium on the "squashed" emojis, and will let you guys know once we know more slight smile

 

As for the deterioration you mentioned in your last post as well, I can't see it when I check myself ... I was wondering if it was still happening on your end, or if it was a temporary thing?

Re: Emoji = some are OK, some are 'squashed'

Thanks for confirming @jonsie , this has been raised so hopefully we'll have an update for you soon smiling

 

Did you also notice any issue with missing emojis, as shown in the screenshot @Cleoriff posted, or are they all there?
