Hi, I was tinkering around with some text in Photoshop 2018 and noticed not every Apple emoji in the font "Apple Color Emoji" was available. I figured they might be available in the most recent update, so I updated my Photoshop to the 2020 version, 21.2.0.
Now none of the emojis in this font work. Facepalm. The emojis show up in the glyphs window but not when you select them as text. The emojis in the font "EmojiOne" work, but I don't like those emojis. Can someone help me use "Apple Color Emoji" again?
I had the same issue. I had the anti-aliasing text option set to "Strong." It seems to work for every anti-aliasing option except Strong (None, Sharp, Crisp, Smooth. Mac, Mac LCD). When you select strong, it becomes transparent. Strange, but that fixed it for me.
