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.

This issue should be fixed in 24.0.1

@Amy Pace Thank you for reporting the issue with Pauline Didone Variable font in Photoshop. I was able to reproduce the issue. It seems the alternate glyphs with this font have never worked with any past and current versions of Photoshop. I will report this as a bug so that our engineering team can investigate the cause and solution.

@ktaki I'm having the same issue with the same font. Is there any fix coming? If not, Adobe may want to either pull the font from their catalog or contact the creator.

@Amy Pace I think it may just be that font. I'm having the same issue.

I actually posted my 'reply' in the Fonts forum and the moderators moved it to PhotoShop. The moderators must know that there is a larger issue affecting more fonts. I have experienced a couple other Adobe fonts with glitches like this but this is the first time I paused and reported it. Usually I just find a workaround.

Same issue. This suddenly started happening to me in June/ July 2023. Cannot believe this glitch was reported s long ago and is still occurring. No matter what I do the alternate character will not turn back to the standard character once changed (and yes I have the related preference checked in Preferences.)... I also have the issue that no glyphs show at all for several fonts which DO have alternate characters within the font.

September 2023 and this issue has STILL NOT been resolved?

 

Shame, Adobe.

Are they ever going to fix this? I just dropped twelve bucks on a font specifically to get the alternate glyphs and I can't use them. I tried an older version of PS as well and same issue.

This is a problem across all Adobe apps with many fonts (Adobe and others, but not all of them). In InDesign, I have had some success duplicating my character style and naming it "alternates" then assigning the Opentype features and Stylistic set I wanted to that style, then using it wherever I want the glyphs. But it is so frustrating.

I just got off a remote session with Adobe and because they found other fonts that were *not* affected by this issue they told me to contact the type creator.

I explained that this is affecting multiple people and multiple fonts and that this font worked a year ago, so there's no excuse for it to not be Adobe's fault.

I read out Amy Pace's reply above me to them.

They hung up on me.

If anyone knows of any good free typesetting alternatives let me know :') I cannot do my job while this is broken.

Interesting customer service approach if that was on purpose. Let's hope it wasn't. Some of the fonts affected are from the Adobe repository so if it's the font author, Adobe should now be communicating the issue to the authors under contract. I'm working on a publication at this moment using Adobe's distributed Montserrat. In order to use the alt glyphs, I have created 2 character styles, "fancy" and "plain" (you can guess which is which). I highlight the letter I want to fancify and click the style name in the character style window (sometimes I have to click PLAIN then FANCY for it to work). Then I apply any other font characteristics like size, leading, weight. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

It's not fixed at all. Anything I type turns into glyphs after using one single glyph in any font. Maybe in 10 years the bug will be solved....until that, what should we do if we cannot type regular text inside photoshop?

Did you happen to get a case number at the very start of the call?
