So I created the initial cover of my book a few years ago with a font called Prida02Calt using the type options of all caps and contextual alternates so only the first letter would have the swashes and it worked perfectly.
Since then I have made several more books in the series so I am using the same font. If I COPY the layer from the original PSD file to a new PSD file I can type a word and only the first letter will have the swash, and if I want the end letter to have a swash too all I have to do is click the contextual alternate option in the properties menu and it will switch to the swash option.
However, if I create a NEW text layer and all caps I get ALL swashs, which would really be that annoying if I could just click the contextual alternate button to get it to switch to the non-swash version of the fricken letter. But contextual alternate does NOTHING now. In order to change it I have to manually go to the glyphs and find the letter without the swash... SUPER freaking annoying and not to mention time consuming.
When I go look that the original text layer that I created a few years ago that works correctly the Standard Ligature has a check and the contextual alternates has a - (Im assuming since I'm using both)...
Anyway, I am pretty sure if I can check the standard ligature option in the NEW files/layers I will be able to fix my issue, however, standard ligature is greyed out.
Attached is a screenshot. I want Flynn to appear like Beau does with just the first and last letter using the swashes however, because the contextual alternates dont seem to be working I would have to manually go and select the non-swashed versions of the letters from the glyph menu which is time consuming. Especially when I have to do this for SEVERAL files.
