Hello @Xavier Kress !

As I understand, you want to remove the automatic conversion of a specific set of characters into an emoji.

Currently, there is no feature that allows us to disable only specific emojis. What we have is ways to avoid any emoji or disable them all.

If you want to undo the conversion of any set of character into emojis, you can use this button combination:

CTRL+Z – Windows

CMD+Z – macOS

Now, if you want to disable All Character Conversion Into Emojis, you need to do this:

  1. Click your profile picture
  2. Select click the “Settings” option
  3. Click the “Edit” button
  4. Uncheck the “Enable Keyboard Shortcuts” option
  5. Click the “Save” option

This procedure will disable both the conversion to emojis and the keyboard shortcuts in Confluence. This setting affects your user account only.

If you want a more in-depth view of this topic, you can take a look here:


I hope this helps! Looking forward to your reply.

Many thanks for your reply
