Consider the following scenario:
- You sign in to a Microsoft Lync 2010 client, and then you open a conversation.
- You add an emoticon to the conversation.
- You click the emoticon, and then you click the Formatting button (A) to display the format text table.
This issue occurs because the highlighted emoticon is incorrectly treated as a text object. This is incorrect because emoticons are actually control objects. Changes to the font settings are not allowed on control objects.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
