Inserting and then Deleting Unicode Emojis into The Text Element Crashes Unity




Priority: 3Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 1Crash, freeze, data loss, work stops

How to reproduce:
1. Open the User Submitted Project
2. In the Hierarchy menu Right-click -> UI -> Text
3. In the Inspector menu click the Text field and paste in the ?? Emoji a few times
4. Delete the Emoji

Expected result: The Text field displays the Unicode Emoji and doesn't crash when they're deleted
Actual result: Unity displays � in the Scene View and freezes when the text is deleted followed by a crash

Reproducible with: 2018.1.0b6, 2017.3.2f1, 2017.2.2p1, 2017.1.3p2
Not reproducible with: 2018.1.0b12, 2018.1.0b7, 2017.4.0f1

- Any of the Emoji from this list reproduce the crash:
- The issue seems to be related to the .NET 4.x Scripting runtime, changing it into 3.5 fixes the crashing but throws the "ArgumentException: invalid utf-16 sequence at 6274000 (missing surrogate tail)" error instead when Emoji are deleted.
