Bear 1.7 is here with note Encryption, Bear Lock, Live Note Links, and more!
Among the new features in Bear 1.7:

“Live Note Links
“Bear has this great feature where you can link notes together. It’s great for organizing notes for a project, building a personal wiki or journal, and more.

“In Bear 1.7, note links will now update automatically if you change the title of a linked note. We now call these Live Note Links.

“More Special Searches
“Search is a powerful tool in Bear, and in 1.7 we’re expanding the array of Special Search operators available. Your searches can now include or exclude tags, focus on top-level tags (excluding nested tags), and more.

“Emoji Autocomplete
“Introducing Emoji Autocomplete. Now, anywhere in a note, type a colon (:) and a few letters, and Bear will suggest emoji for you. Try something like :laugh or :food or :work.”

The ordering of the emoji and the annotations are based on Unicode CLDR data. Emoji sequences have more than one code point in the Code column. Recently-added emoji are marked by a ⊛ in the name and outlined images; their images may show as a group with ‘…’ before and after.”

Install High Sierra Emoji on Older Versions
“I’m being extremely stubborn and refusing to update to High Sierra at the moment for good reason. The only thing that’s really been annoying me is the fact I can’t see emoji sent from iOS 11 or macOS 10.13 on Sierra but there’s an easy fix.

“Emoji is just a font that renders the unicode characters. On a Mac this is called Apple Color Emoji.ttc and is located in /System/Library/Fonts. Because of this it’s very easily overriden by placing a newer version in /Library/Fonts.”

“Some women advise against using emojis professionally, or being friendly in writing, because we’re taken less seriously if we do.

“Nah. I think men should change, and start being _more_ friendly and using _more_ emojis.

“Friendliness is essential to effective communication.”

(And this reply is pretty good:)

Apple’s Emoji Search Is Bad – MacStories
“Prior to macOS Sierra’s release in September 2016, emoji search for Mac was the opposite: general terms wouldn’t return any results - but if you knew the emoji name you could get it to appear 100% of the time. This is no longer the case.

“I do wonder if an internal effort to make these types of search and prediction tools better in the longer term is making them worse for users in the short term.”

“📱💻 Preface Calendar with emoji to make them more recognizable, fun
“Got a great trick from my friend Dan Peterson. Try adding emoji to the beginning of your calendar events. If you come up with a system, it helps them to be more identifiable when glancing at alerts or your schedule. It’s also just kinda fun.

“For example: 💪🏻 or 🏃🏽‍♀️ might be good for your workout events. I used 🎥 for date night this weekend to see Blade Runner 2049 (it was fantastic, go see it). 🎉 and 🍻 are good for meeting up with friends. I guess there are some good work-related ones too. 😉”

Sad React – Lingua Franca - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education
"A couple of weeks ago, students in my introductory linguistics course told me about sad react and angry react as new slang terms. I didn’t realize I was wondering what an emoji might sound like if said out loud, but now I know. The phrases may originate with Facebook, where the sad emoji and the angry emoji are among the reaction choices to other people’s posts. Students report that now if you want to express in speech that you are sorry or that you are angry, you can say, respectively, “sad react” (to capture the sad emoji pictured above) or “angry react” (to capture the angry emoji pictured here). Sure, this may be a more lighthearted, less serious way to express these emotions, but there are times when that hits just the right tone."

Now, when you select Show Emoji & Symbols the Characters (plural) palette shows up."
