Sorry if this was answered somewhere else, but I could not find an answer.
All the text editors installed in my system can display emojis except Emacs (version 27), even if they use the same font.
As an example, I configured both Emacs and Gedit to use the JetBrains Mono font. Gedit can display the shrug emoji 🤷 but Emacs cannot.
It seems, this can be workaround by specifying a fallback font that will display these symbols:
(set-fontset-font t nil "Symbola" nil 'append)
However other editors do not require such trick (although maybe they use a similar mechanism by default).
Are editors like Gedit or Visual Studio using a some trick to display emojis that Emacs does not?
