Emoji Support on iPad

Recommended Posts



It seems that emoji’s are not support on the iPad version of the app when typing with the text tool. It shows an X in a box, instead of the selected emoji. This was a feature that I had expected when I purchased. Is it something that you can/will add in a future update? Thank you.

As a workaround, you can create a document containing the desired emojis, for example, in Apple Pages and save it as a PDF. If you open that PDF in Affinity Photo or Designer you can select each emoji as an idividual layer and copy/paste it into your own document.

The emojis in the PDF are pixel graphics and don’t have that much resolution. But at least, they have a transparent background. For some use cases, it will do. See attached examples.
