Emoji copying issue

Hello

Seems that recently github issue features builtin emoji conversion to colored one png, for example :rainbow_flag:

But if you control-c it will be converted to text “rainbow_flag” instead, is it possible to save the original emoji unicode?

I copied the contents of this issue body and then pasted it into the edit box of a new comment. The text rainbow_flag was not pasted. I also tried pasting the copied text directly into a text editor with the same result.

Can you give more information as to what step-by-step you’re doing that results in the rainbow_flag text being copied?
