Hello, friends!  Can someone please help...I just need to know if Photoshop elements 2020 supports the alternative charaters/glyphs in open type fonts.  Support said yes on the phone and chat, so I downloaded it and I don't see how to access the additional characters.  Does anyone know?  Thank you in advance!

While it's true that pse 2020 most likely would support alternate characters/glyphs, adobe

does not provide any means to set the alternate characters/glyphs in photoshop elements, so

i guess the answer is no.

 

On both windows and mac you can use the Character Map (windows) or Character Viewer (mac)

to insert alternate characters/glyphs into your type in pse 2020.

Thanks, Jeff!  How do you use the character map to insert alternate characters/glyphs into my type when they only have a Unicode like "U+056F"?  I only know how to get them when they have the Alt+number.

Thank you so much!  :0 )

It could be that font doesn't have that Glyph.

 

What font and Glyph do you want to use?

I have spent SO MUCH time figuring this out.

 

First this was an incredible tutorial for a MAC. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urGmdJehdwo&t=8s

for PC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1KwVkqxX1E

 

So I would start there. They, however, didn't work for me but can blatantly see it works for them here. 

I ended up downloading an app called Ultra Character Map. I work on a MacBookPro 2014 and I had to copy the image from the app AS A PICTURE....not TEXT. It says:

"If you can’t paste the glyph, try the Copy as Picture command instead. Glyph-to-character mappings are determined by the font’s author."

 

So it worked as a picture and I will take it!!

 

GOOD LUCK! 

 

In this short video, I show you how to access all of those glorious alternate characters that come in well designed font packages. This tip is for Mac users ...
