Emojis are color glyphs which follow the Unicode standard.


They are present in three blocks:

https://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U1F900.pdf


Other symbols available in different blocks (like Maps and Transportation) can be treated as Emojis and be designed as color glyphs. You can find all the code charts here: https://www.unicode.org/charts/


To create a font with color Emojis you need an editor like FontLab VI. FontLab Studio 5 does not support color glyphs.


We are finalizing its development so you can find some problems. But the last public preview is mostly functional:

Documentation for the new FontLab is available, although also under development:
