Hey AE guys
I am using the latest AE and I cant find the open type feature button in the text window. Do you know where I can find it?
If this feature (like we know from Illustrator, InDesign) does not exist, I request the AE development team to solve more solutions with the whole font handling.
• Even with missing font
• Font search and replace
• Glyphs window
Or do I have the wrong workflow? Normally I set up all the text (headlines in my case) native in AE.
Thanks for your recommendations and replies

AE hasn't any of these features. Never had and whether any of this will ever appear, is another question. It's much requested, but there are specific things to consider since animated type can behave in a million ways differently from static type...
Ligatures, other contextual substitutions and a few other things. This has nothing to do with a glyph-palette, these are native OpenType features that need to be adressed interanlly e.g. when using text animators.
If things like ligatures need to be considered, then go on, “consider” them, and get on with the program! 🙂
FYI, I've noticed that if I adjust the text in illustrator and copy and paste it into AE, it retains the formatting (like alternate Opentype characters, for example).
This is the real solution. Guaranteed working. No doubt about it.
However for those don't have Illustrator, this font feature surely deep down buried untouched and unused in AE.
