I recently activated the font, "Orpheus", in Adobe Fonts (Adobe CC). My problem is this: Although all the alternative styles/swashes are showing in the Glyphs Panel, it is not changing my text when I click it. Is anyone familiar with this problem and knows how to solve it? I appreciate your help, thanks!

I just activated that font and it seems to work here with Orpheus Pro. Do you have the text selected (not just the layer) and are you double clicking in the glyphs panel to add the alternative character?

Hi Dave,

Thank you for the reply. Yes, I am double clicking in the glyphs after selecting the letter but nothing happens. I even tried inserting the letter but it's the same. I have attached a screenshot.. As you can see, all the letters in the box after "Glyphs" are the styles I already chose but the letter "R" retains the standard version. And this is despite the fact that many styles are availble in the Glyph Box.

"the alternative styles/swashes are showing"

 

Change the type style to Italics and you will be able to use Swashes on Caps and Small Caps. You can look in Type > OpenType to see what is available for any specific typeface and style. If it's grayed out, the designer has not included it.

If there is an alternate glyph then you will see a bar under the letter and can use that instead of the Glyphs panel if it's easier.
