Description Ryan 2016-12-25 04:52:39 UTC
On a 2016 MBP with Touch Bar, while in the editor box, tapping the 'emoji' icon on the bar, then tapping any emoji will cause the client to crash immediately. Using the bar to autocomplete standard text does not seem to cause any issue.

Can you please attach client logs to help diagnose? Thanks.

This might be fixed in our upcoming 1.1 release, but I don't have the hardware to confirm.

Keep an eye out for an update in the next few weeks.

You might be able to repro this *without* a new 2016 MacBook Pro with TouchBar by using 


That allows viewing and interacting with the TouchBar contents on any Mac. It requires Sierra 10.12.2 or later.
Comment 5 Chris Hamons 2017-01-23 16:31:23 UTC
I can reproduce this on the hardware.
Comment 6 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2017-01-23 17:09:39 UTC
And this is not fixed (yet) for 1.1. The error in the log is a red herring. We are investigating this now. :-)
Comment 7 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2017-02-17 20:58:27 UTC
The crash did end up getting fixed for 1.1, which is now released.

I believe 1.1 still has some issues with touchbar emoji input, but we are working on fixing those for 1.2.
Comment 8 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2017-02-17 21:15:46 UTC
Bojan confirmed that emoji input in our code cells now works as expected in 1.2. So that part is fixed as well.
