Inserting Emojis into Articulate Lesson

I am trying to insert emojis into Articulate Storyline 3 on Windows 10, as described in the Articulate article: http://blogs.articulate.com/rapid-elearning/3-ways-to-insert-emojis/. Except, when I try to insert them, they are appearing as blocks instead of an actual font. Meaning Articulate Storyline doesn't recognize them.

Hi MJ and Sara,

Have you tried using any Unicode Characters? I tested myself (but I'm using a Mac/Parallels to access Windows, so I don't have an Alt key) but you could test these steps:

  1. Press and hold down the Alt key.
  2. Press the + (plus) key on the numeric keypad.
  3. Type the hexidecimal unicode value.
  4. Release the Alt key.

You can often look up the Unicode values or get a whole chart with a web search. I tried copying/pasting the emojis in using what I saw in the list, and Storyline showed it as the 3 rectangles as you mentioned. But figured it was worth testing out the Unicode if you can.
