This happens with multiple different fonts that I use, but it doesn't happen all of the time for some reason. On certain files it will happen all of the time, other files it doesn't happen at all (all saved as the same filetype, PSD) despite using the same font.
It just began happening on a new font now that I have never had trouble with, and this one in particular would cause me one major headache. Basically, if there are overlapping portions in a font where one character extends into the next (frequently, script fonts) then the overlap section is deleted/masked. The attached screenshot shows better what I mean.
Is there some kind of setting that I can alter to prevent this?
Using Photoshop 23.5.1, and this happened with a previous laptop (Windows 10 and 11) as well so I don't think it's necessarily specific to my machine.
