So new to Illustrator 2017 is the alternative glyphs on the canvas.

How to work with special characters in Illustrator

This has been added to Photoshop as well, however it can be turned off in Photoshop. (Preferences > Type > Enable Type Layer Glyph Alternates)

Glyphs panel in Photoshop

Can we get this on/off preference added to Illustrator in an update please?

PLEASE TURN OFF GLYPH POP UP! It's a useless annoying feature. Why? Just why?

No need to yell. Just go to Preferences > Type and uncheck "Show alternates".

Unfortunately "show alternates" is not a box you can uncheck, did you happen to mean "show charater alternates"? Unchecking that box and "enable missing glyph protection" both did nothing so solve the green pop text that says "glyphbound" so I think Adobe still needs to add a way to turn this off

You have this issue with the green popup text in version 24.3?

This thread is 3 years old and nothing in here will help you.

A look at the new fetures summary can help you: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new/2020-3.html
