I swear this is a bug, but the Discord Testers members are assuring me that this is a feature.
When you go to type in an emoji and press enter, if your mouse is hovering an emoji, it will select that emoji instead of the one at the top.
What I expect to happen is that it selects the top result instead of the one I am hovering. You can see this with any web browser address bar if you go to type something and press enter while your mouse is hovering the 3rd or 4th item. It will select the top item in the list, and not the one that is hovered.
In the following example, I would expect the top result :LUL-4: to be selected. Instead what it will do is select :lulWUT:, which is not the emoji that I wanted to select.
Apparently most HTML combobox autocomplete lists select the item that is hovered/selected, so in that case, it would select the one the mouse is hovering when you press "Enter". This makes sense for a dedicated drop down in a form field where you're more careful and intentful with your selections.
However, in a chat program where you want a midline or endline emoji and you want to only use the keyboard to send messages faster, this is impossible if your mouse goes into the emoji box area.
One of the testers suggested, "Just move your mouse outside of the area," which I think is a ridiculous suggestion. I shouldn't need to change an instinctive habit that is the result of natively using the app in the first place, especially when this method of "type part of emoji code, move mouse to desired emoji, then press enter" is, as far as I can tell, never actually used.
This same exact issue was closed over a year ago for not being a feature request apparently. Since the Discord Testers are adamant that this is not a bug, I really hope that this won't be removed.
