I open my emoji “keyboard“ using the language and keyboard icon on the taskbar at the top right of my screen. However, it only lets me enter one emoji at a time at which point the emoji “keyboard” disappears from the screen. If I want to use multiple emojis in any application, I find I have to open the emoji “keyboard“ every single time, which is a drag.
Is there a way of opening the emoji keyboard and keeping it open (like on iOS) so that I don’t have to open it for every single entry?
For example, this becomes a problem when I try to build a travel itinerary in Notes or Pages and identify my headings with emoji travel-related icons. In iOS, I just open the emoji keyboard and pick and choose any number of emojis that I need before closing the keyboard. In macOS Catalina, I open the emojis, click on the one I want, press enter, the selected emoji appears where I want it on the screen, but then the keyboard disappears. I’d like that keyboard to remain open on my screen in macOS just like in iOS. That’s the issue.
