Special Characters and Emojis

Accents and other special characters can be added to some components.

This feature works comparably in both the Classic and Flex UI versions of the UBCMS. In the future, screenshots and language will be updated to reflect Flex UI.

Caution is required

Please be thoughtful in your use of special characters. Some special characters may be correct but display awkwardly on the page. Emoji meanings vary markedly from culture to culture and a poor but well-intentioned choice may confuse or even upset your audience.

Emojis

Support for Emojis

Text components (e.g. Body Text, Title, Flexible Shared Content) support emojis. Copy-paste the symbol into the component dialog box from another source, but please be very thoughtful. Emoji meanings vary markedly from culture to culture and a poor but well-intentioned choice may confuse or even upset your audience.

Text components also support special characters.
