The emoji support doesn't fully work.
If I copy something with an emoji, continue on my way and later that day, paste what I copied via the Quick Menu or the Main Window, it works as expected and the emoji are pasted (even if they appear as ?? in the UI).
However, if I try to paste the same copied line via the Main Window the next day - having turned off my PC overnight - the emoji isn't included in the pasted text, it's replaced by the ??.
One thing worth mentioning, possibly related: when I started using this alpha (2.52.0), one of the first things I did was restore a db backup made with the latest stable version of CH+S. When I did that, it threw an error about something related to Blobs, but it the backup was restored and I see all my old copied content, including images, in the Main Window of the alpha.
Edit: just noticed I don't have the latest alpha. I'm going to get it and try again.
Edit 2: installed the latest alpha (it says 2.52.0 in the app), didn't restore my backup, used it for a while and then rebooted. Emoji and non-latin (Hebrew) characters are being pasted fine, so perhaps it's the restoring a backup from the stable version that ruined things earlier. Going to try that now.
Edit 3: the restore was successful and I can see past copies, but if I try to paste anything at all, I get this error: Feature request: emoji support
. I also noticed this in the lower lefthand corner: Feature request: emoji support
. However, once I exited the app and launched it again, it works fine.
