If you have installed yesterday or today a new OS X Mavericks, you will be glad to know that you have the opportunity to use the emoji graphic emoticons, as well as special symbols.
It’s very easy to do this. It is necessary to press the combination Control + Command + Space and select the symbol you are interested in. The principle of operation is exactly the same as for the keyboard emoji on any iOS device.
Additionally, you can use a set of special characters, which are called by clicking on the arrows in the lower right corner.
By the way, the window can be translated into a large view to work with a full set of specials. characters by simply clicking in the upper right corner.
