I am using Photoshop 24.0.0. When I use the font Leander Script Pro Bold (a script font), alternate letters show when I rollover the letter, but when I try to choose an alternative, it doesn't change. I opened the file in Photoshop 23.3.2 and it worked just fine.

@Outtacontext 

 

Can you show two screenshots, one from 24.0 and one from 23.3.2 with more than we can see in your tiny sample?

 

Include:

  • text with a character that has an alternate with that character selected (as you have)
  • character panel with panel menu (upper right) open
  • glyphs panel

Also, tell us which screen shot goes with which version.

Jane, the screenshot in 24.0.0 looks identical to the way it looks in older versions. And, when I open the glyph panel, and click on an alternate, it doesn't change in 24.0.0

I am experiencing this issue in 2023 as well. Alternate glyphs are not replacing the primary glyph. Even selecting an alternate glyph from the glyph panel inserts the primary glyph.

Same here. Could copy paste a txt layer from into PS24 with the alternate glyph from PS 23 , but then I again couldn't change the glyph versions.

Using Freight Sans font for numbers drops them down, normally we are able to select a different glyph character to get it inline. After updating to 2023, you can still select the right glyph, but nothing happens? Any ideas how to fix this issue?

Hello folks! 

I am a T-shirt designer and I mostly work with fancy phonts to create my designs. Since last week I have major troubles working with glyphs / alternate characters in my fonts. All the fonts used to work properly before the update.

 

ISSUE 1 - pop-up does not change after chosing an alternate.

KuraHarabura_0-1667850990338.png

Well, this is a fancy font having 5 alternates for each letter. I typed Lorem Ipsum text and changed P to the filled one. After the change if I want to access the other alternates again, they do not show.

KuraHarabura_1-1667851080587.png

 

ISSUE 2 - letters do not change at all!

KuraHarabura_2-1667851143421.png

I created several designs with this font before and it worked well. In this case the alternate characters do show, but after clicking it they do not change at all.

 

When I want to insert the character from the Glyphs map, it inserts the default.

(you see a different letter "p" was to be inserted)

 

3. ISSUE 3 - text already typed with alternates changes back to default letters after clicking on it.

An older design, where I manually changed each letter for the most realistic look.

After I click on the text to edit...

Voila! All the letters are the default, the same.

 

I would really like this bug resolved soon as the peak season is coming.

 

Thank you!

 

Running on Win 10.

Did this change the exact time you installed Photoshop 2023?

I assume you kept the old version - does this now happen in Photoshop 2022, or does it still work as before?

Unfortunately the newest update, 24.01, did not fix this problem as I am currently experiencing it with Bookman JF Pro.

@Jeffrey Tranberry 

Hello! 2 of 3 issues are solved for me:

1 - I can insert alternates from the Glyph panel again 

2 - I can switch between alternates while typing from the pop-up

 

Thirs issue remains - text written in older PS version using alternates...
