Pulling Emoji's into Left() formula

#1

Does anyone know how/if it is possible to bring Emoji’s into the “Left()” formula? – or if there’s another way? As you can probably see from the screenshot, trying to do this brings about the unknown character icon.

Thanks!

I think you should replace 1 with 2 in those formulas. That’s because usually Emoji use not one but two UTF characters (a surrogate pair), and Coda seems to not have any special processing for that in its Left() function.
