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 )
In the Character Map click on the symbol, click Select, click Copy, then back in photoshop elements right click and Paste or press Ctrl+V
Thanks, Jeff! (What if you can't see all the extra glyphs in character map?)
It could be that font doesn't have that Glyph.
What font and Glyph do you want to use?
An example--Adios Script Pro opentype has three different options for the capital M and the character map doesn't show them.
I have spent SO MUCH time figuring this out.
First this was an incredible tutorial for a MAC.
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!!
