Glyph alternatives - Prevent automatic change

Hi Community,

we use a few fonts where glyph alternatives are assigned/occupied in the font.
Now it has occasionally happened in our team that a colleague has to make a correction and the alternative has been used for certain characters and not the 'source character' (original).


In the example you can see the @ sign, which is already a small difference.
Is it possible to prevent this, or which setting must be the same in the team?

Many Thanks
Frank

Which Adobe application are you using where the alternate glyphs are being applied (such as Illustrator, InDesign or another application)?

 

Some settings can be turned on/off in certain palettes or dialog boxes. In Illustrator some automatic OpenType features such as ligatures and smart quotes can be toggled in the Smart Punctuation dialog box. The OpenType palette can turn on/off ligatures and other features. Fonts often have style sets. Different style sets can trigger certain alternate characters to be used rather than the default glyphs. That may apply to the different apersand glyphs in the font you are using.

That's the application and the user's local choice for that application. Some users change that, and are not aware that it breaks the teams choice of characters alternates.

Hi Abambo, that is probably correct. Do you know which setting that would be in Indesign? We have already looked for it and have not found it.
