Re: emoticons & smilies for Mac
I use the MacMail program. Oh, I see... I just dragged it successfully this time. Too easy. So is there a way to have this Character box on my toolbar, so it's easy to access? That would be nice?

Re: emoticons & smilies for Mac
I am so lost! My question is the same as the last one about having all the emoticons in a toolbar for easy access. I am very new to computers. I have a Macbook Pro and I don't even know how to copy & paste--so that is out of the question. Please, if there is anyone who can help, I would appreciate it. My "help" bar shows that I have the capacity to have these things, I just don't know how to get them where I want them. We have no Apple stores near where I live either. I would like to have the Character box as a tool bar also. It says I have the OS Lion or whatever, so I should have this stuff. I feel like a real dummy, but I need help to add a little extra cheer to my e-mails. My e-mail is through my phone company and it is Qwest/Century Link now. Is that a problem? Thank you to whoever can decipher this and help!!

Re: emoticons & smilies for Mac

As far as i know, there is no emoticon toolbar for Lion (although you might want to search in the app store)..

PS: Copy and paste is a basic tenant of computing, and it's one of the simplest things to do!
To copy: click on whatever you want to copy, or drag your mouse over and select it
then, on the menu select EDIT, then COPY - whatever you selected is now copied into the clipboard (memory)
To paste: go to wherever you want to stick (paste) whatever you just copied, click your mouse there, go to EDIT, and select PASTE - whatever you copied will be "pasted" right there! boom - simple!

When you get real fancy, instead of going to the menu, you can click the command button and the "C" button at the same time for copy, and the command button and the "V" button for pasting.

I don't have Lion. Is there still a way to do smiley beyond :) :( :-} etc. A friend of mine just did a pink pig and a yellow smiley with its tongue sticking out.

When I followed your advice to copy and paste the emoji characters, it only copies the info and not the character. Why?

I dunno? Maybe where you are pasting it to does not support these extended characters? Where are you pasting it too?
When you paste it into another Mac program, like say, Mail, does it work?

I was posting to FaceBook, I tried several different ways to do it, double clicking puts the character there but when I click post, it goes away. I have OSX 10.8.2, so I figured it would work. It does work on my mail app though.

Re: emoticons & smilies for Mac

I dont know what you mean by "double clicking" , but when right-click on the Trademark icon in the Character Map, and select "Copy character info", then go to Facebook, right-click in my status box, and select "paste", the character and extra info is pasted in.  if i delete the extra info, leave just the character, and hit "post", it looks fine.®

Not on my Mac, it will only paste the info, not the actual character.
