Disable Automatic Emoji?

Recommended Posts

Evernote 6.13.14 for Windows

I was just updating some tech notes, and went to make a note about a drive letter and the EN editor replaced my "D:" with a small black rectangle.

I presume this was supposed to be an automatic text formatting element, and I can't think of anything else this might be except for a frowny emoji?

I've tried searching the forums and can't find much on this, except for people asking for emoji support.  I've also tried disabling the Automatically format text elements option, but that didn't help with this.

Is there a way to turn this off that I'm missing?

Hmmn.  Using "D:" here without quotes will get you this unhappy face -  ? - and this isn't Evernote code,  it's an independent commercial forum.  There seems to be some kind of international standard applying.  Cap D however is the only letter of the alphabet affected - and it's Saturday I tried 'em all ?.  It did lead to my finding out how to add emojis to my text with the Windows on-screen Touch keyboard,  so I no longer need to mess around with :codes:

Couldn't find any lists of emoji keyboard shortcuts - all the links I tried were about how to get to your virtual keyboard.

As regards your actual question,  I can only suggest you type inside a code block - the auto formatting seems not to work there...  ???

Sorry ?

Hmm. I find that for me it's :D, not D:, that gets turned into a box, undoubtedly substituting for some emoji my system can't display. I followed the auto-formatting instructions, and did Tools > Options > Note > Note editing and deselected Automatically format text elements, as @msg5's screenshot also shows. And this turns everything off except the emojis. Sheesh. The only other strategy currently available is the other one listed in the instructions: "To revert auto-formatting back to the original text input: Go to Edit > Undo from the menu bar, or use keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Z." Is there an emoji for :stupid:? If not, why not?

Hehe, yeah, Dave, the : D would be the accompanying smiley opposite for frowny D :

G - I do make regular use of the Code Block option but just didn't fit the use here in this particular note.  I use the Code Block option for sets of commands, or instructions, etc.  I'm still on 6.13, and have noticed that I can't indent with Code Block anymore like I used to be able to.  Also seen some strange behavior there where where in some versions or some methods of use, the code block would start at the left margin, and only the text would indent.  And then other times, I'd be able to indent the Code Block windows itself.  I'd settle for either at this point.

So, no way to disable emojis? I never need them or want them. Adding in spaces is unintuitive when it comes to searching later, or pasting this content into other tools.

+1 this behavior is infuriating. Please add a way to disable emojis.

This is really surprising. I really can't turn this off? Surely we must just be missing something.

I can't find a way to turn it off either....

Emojis need to go. It's not a chit-chat app.

This is sounding more like a feature request. Should I move it over to the appropriate forum?

Can we make this an optional feature though?  Rather than a removal - there are bound to be a number of users who do actually like it...

I agree, I need to write < 3 without space & without it turning into stupid ❤️ !!!  This must be removed or at least an option to disable!  EN is first & foremost for note-taking not a chat app!

I agree. I like to take notes of all kinds of things and emojis keep popping up when I do.

Sorry for reviving a dead thread, but I just checked and I couldn't find it anywhere in the feature requests forum. So yes, if you were waiting for an answer to this, yes please do.

One more vote for disabling emoji in web.  I'm on linux so have to do web!  I'm writing stories, tech notes  so emoji are completely inappropriate to my context.
