Emoji Support

Shortcat supports emoji insertion if you're focused on an input field. Begin the search query by typing : and then typing out the name of the emoji. For example, you can type the 💩 emoji by first typing :, typing poop, press enter, and it will insert the emoji into the text field.

Synonyms are also supported for emojis. For example, you can type poop, turd, or crap and it will match the 💩 emoji.
