This happens because colon is used to trigger emoji search, and the arrow keys are captured and used to navigate the emoji search results.

I agree what you’re describing here feels buggy, and I would recommend the following changes:

  • Only capture up/down arrows, not left and right (currently, you can navigate up/down the search results with either combo, but I don’t see a benefit to allowing the use of the left/right keys for this purpose)
  • Only capture arrow keys when showing search results (search results appear once you have typed 3 or more characters, and there is at least one emoji that matches that search).
