Today I discovered the result of an input of 'D: '. Here is an example:

d: abc
😧 abc (this is the result of 'D: abc'!)

What is the sense of this special character , and why is D: beeing substituted through it?

Thanks for any hint.

Edit: Explanation why I asked this question: I am not seeing the Emoji on the second line in Windows Chrome nor in Evernote. But it's visible on my mobile phone (Android, Chrome).

Hi.  Welcome to the wonderful world of emojii - this may explain more... How to use auto-formatting

Thanks for the hint.

This is not really something I need - Emoji auto-formatting... I am using Emojis when I communicate with somebody else, but I do not need it within my own notes (I am not

schizophrenic). An I do not need them when sharing a note, too. Therefore there should be an option to turn off Emoji auto-formatting completely when not using Evernote in teams.

Anyway: Emojis seem not to function very well in Windows. Attached a screenshot. If I had at least seen the result of the auto-formatting correctly I would not have asked here for the meaning of 'D:'.

BTW Really useful features as e. g. different highlighter colors I am missing in Evernote since years. But something completely superfluous as Emojis is being implemented. Have many users asked for something like that?

Oh my, yes.

Here is a feature request to add an option to disable this auto-formatting "feature"; you can go there and click the upward arrow a the top to add your support:

I meant: Have many users requested to be able to insert emojis (and not to turn them off). 

Disabling auto-formatting is a workaround but not something I want to because I like to insert e.g. a line or a bullet list with the known shortcuts. But it seems that I have to deactivate it completely.

Some more options in Evernote would make everybody happy. The emoji hater and the fans.... Shouldn't be too hard to implement IMO.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. As usual in forums like this, one never hears from the people who think something new is a great idea, only from those for whom it is an intrusion!

In Tools > Options > Notes, under Note editing options, it is possible to disable automatic formatting altogether, or to disable only certain elements--all except emojis!! If that option were added there, I think everyone could have what they want.
