I’m not sure about you guys, but this menu is pretty unusable when opened on a text field not near the top of the screen. It can’t be moved by any means and is hard locked to the position of the mouse cursor.
Also apparently despite opening when using Discord, emojis can’t actually be inserted? That’s weird, works other places.
It’s not Discord. Discord has its own picker.
Here’s what it looks like when I use ctrl-shift-e in Chrome:
I apologize if this isn’t actually a Gnome thing, I had assumed it was, because it’s bound to the hotkey sequence.
I get a different one if I use the right click menu (the only place I can find the right click menu that gives the emoji picker is the file explorer window, which is the one place I probably don’t need it). I believe this one is coming from Ubuntu; one media limit, bleg.
Probably just my UI theme. It’s supposed to make things look more like Windows (which I have to suffer using at work), so I like better than the default that shipped with Pop!OS, which is itself customized from Ubuntu AFAIK.
That’s great and all, but not helpful, as it is not a viable alternative. It’s great and all that it works in any GtkEntry, but as most of my applications aren’t that doesn’t solve my problem. Telling me to go tell Chrome to fix Chrome to be a GtkEntry is similarly useless. We both know they won’t. And going through that same pointless exercise for dozens of applications? Yeah no.
If the menu I came here about isn’t a Gnome menu, that’s fine, but I have no idea what system generated it in order to go complain to the right folks. Just point me in the right direction if you can.
