Photoshop 22: Emoji glyphs being trimmed below baseline (macOS Big Sur)

Hi, I have been having this issue for a while now...it's been an issue on Photoshop 2020 and now on 2021 as well. Bottoms of emojis are being cut off, I have tried changing the baseline shift and other Character settings but nothing seems to fix it. I am running the macOS Big Sur public beta (11.0.1) and Photoshop 22.0.0. From what I can tell a solution used to be turning on Legacy Compositing under Performance settings but it seems that option has been removed. I appreciate any help!

Yep. Can confirm. I'll have engineering take a look. Thanks!

Can you post a .psd (dropbox, CC files) that exhibits this behavior?

I wasn't able to repro.

Same behaviour here on 22.0.0. Catalina was fine, this only happened after update to Big Sur.

I am having the same issues. It only happens with Apple Emoji.

I don't know the answer as to why but have found a workaround (for now). I've been saving the emojis out of keynote as a PDF and opening the file in AI to use in Adobe. Hope that helps!

For those who are waiting the bug to be resolved I've found a very dirt workaround.
After you insert the emoji, under "Transform" click the "mirror" button vertically and horizontally.

After few turns the Emoji is fully rendered and is not cut anymore.

I'm on Photoshop 2021, Big Sur, Mac M1.

Same problem here, are there  any news about the problem?
I'm on Big Sur 11.2.1 and Photoshop 22.1.0, same problem exists with Illustrator and InDesign.
Here is my small workaround, after finishing text edit, click on the move tool and copy/paste the symbol, now it seems to be ok.
Another workaround I found, after finishing the work, you could resize the canvas by 1 px and then resize it back, now the symbols are shown correct.
Here is the same picture as above after resizing the canvas.

Hi! I have a workaround for this...

Just do this:

Type the emoji and then deselect the emoji text box...

Now right-click on the text box and select "Create Outlines"...

This way Apple Color Emoji based emojis can be used without the glyph line cutting the emoji...

To those who like me can't make it to work with the workarounds mentioned before, try rotating the layer for about 15 degrees. That's the only way I managed to make it work.

Apple is aware of the problem, they are working for a fix. For the time being, please use emojiOne font ( smaller emoji character set)
