How to change which font character is used when capitalized

I have a font that contains 2 uppercase 'i' characters. One is a a simple column, the other has crossbars (pic attached).

 

Photoshop will automatically use the crossbars 'i' when used to refer to myself as in "I" or "I'll."

 

It will use the non-crossbars 'I' when used at the start of a sentence when not referring to myself or capitalised within a word, like "Ink is FINE".

 

Is there a way to change how this works? I would like the crossbars I to be used whenever it's at the beginning of a sentence. I can manually select the character and change this is in glyphs but I have a lot of text to edit in that case. 


I know very little about how fonts work, so this is maybe about editing the underlying font file somehow. I really just need to be pushed in the right direction as I'm not sure where to start or what to search for. 

 

Thankyou
