I read Philippe's post and I remembered the following thread that I 
started in the High-Logic forum.
Are these of any interest as designs?
Best regards,

Subject: emojis for mouse buttons?

A lot of application need to document their keymap and want to display 

For now there are emojis for mouses (several variants: 1, 2 or 3 
buttons), independently of the button actually pressed.

However there's no simple emoji to represent the very common mouse click 
buttons used in lot of UI.

But it would be good to have emojis for the left, center, and right 
click (showing a mouse with the correct button filled in black), instead 
of writing "left click" in plain text.

Has it been proposed ?

See for example https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/ID/Shortcuts
