If I create a text box on a Whiteboard containing certain Unicode characters (e.g. ❶), they are only rendered correctly during editing.  When I focus another control, they are replaced with a symbol like 🔲.

Screen recording of the bug here:


System details:

  • Firefox 118.0.1 (64-bit)
  • macOS Ventura 13.6 (M2 Pro)

@Duncan Bayne thanks for the feedback. Our text rendering engine doesn't support all emojis at the moment. We have this as a ticket in our backlog to work on in the future.
