I think that emojis not rendering to PDF has been a longstanding issue… and I thought that I had filed a bug report on this but looking at bugzilla, I failed to find it. (sigh). I have code in two of my apps that alert the user, should PDF creation fail, that they should remove emojis from

Hello Graham, I agree that using a built in native keyboard is the best solution… if it does what you need. I have an app where the native keyboard (numeric keypad in this case) presented enough distractions of its own that I ended up rolling my own in a later version of the app. For my
