lowriter does not handle emoji's properly

Hi Everyone,

I need help to workaround
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139892.

I have an ODT document with an emoji in it. An emoji is just a Unicode
codepoint (https://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html)
After conversion to PDF using lowriter the emoji is not present.
Conversion happens with:

    lowriter --convert-to pdf emoji.odt

I'm working on Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal), x86_64, fully patched. Ubuntu
20.04 provides LibreOffice 6.4.6.2 40 (Build:2).

How do I ensure the emoji survives the conversion?

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

Re: lowriter does not handle emoji's properly

Don't know if this will help, but went to the link, and got same results
with converting to pdf resulting in no emoji..
With the text example thou, I was able to get something that worked..
Saved the file as an html file.
Then opened the file in firefox.
Then printed to file on my Fedora 32 machine to a PDF.
That PDF file does seem to have the kiss_mark emojis.
Don't know if it will work  with the ones you want, but might want to try
that...

Re: lowriter does not handle emoji's properly

Hi,I don't know if it is significant, but on Fedora 32 (LO7.0), I get
the same behaviour. I was able to trace this back to the font Noto
Emoji Color (this is the font reported in the PDF document) which,
though installed correctly, does not show in any output document, nor
does it display in the Font application in my Fedora release.This may
be an issue with the font rather than LO.I hope this helps.Rémy.
