Description Jens Petersen 2018-03-13 08:55:29 UTC
Description of problem:
I feel it is better to hide glyphs without font coverage by default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ibus emoji lists glyphs with no font coverage.
   (search for some less common character)

Actual results:
some tofu (unicode substitute character) glyphs listed

Expected results:
Better to hide missing glyphs by default

Why do you think they should be hidden?
I even want to show them.
E.g. Even if emojis are missed glyphs, the code points are useful.
E.g. some control chars U+0080 to U+009F in Unicode.
They just explain no glyphs and input, output, copy paste works fine.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2018-03-14 07:49:56 UTC
Well you could have an option to show them. :)

Anyway close if you think it is a bad idea.

Comment 3 fujiwara 2018-03-14 08:05:42 UTC
OK, I'd leave this bug for a while to get other opinions.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2018-12-12 03:39:19 UTC
I don't see any missing emoji now... dunno if that is because of newer emoji font.
And search is moved to emoji input so I think this bug is already addressed.
