Product and version: FileMaker Pro Advanced

OS and version: macOS 10.12 (16A323)

Hardware: MacBook Pro 17" - Late 2011

Description: After upgrading to macOS 10.12 from OS X 10.11.6, any instance of an emoji text character contained in an object that is rotated 90 or 270 degrees will not display.

How to replicate:

  1. Enter Layout mode from form or list view
  2. Insert a new text object containing an emoji character, such as US flag (    )
  3. Activate the pointer tool, select the text block, then rotate command to rotate once for 90 degrees, or 3 times to rotate 270 degrees.
  4. Enter Browse mode to view (emoji does not display)
