Could you please post a screenshot in which the Character Panel is fully visible?

Ahhh! Okay, I feel like an idiot. I just went to menu and Character Panel and everything is there. BUT in my (perhaps limited) defense, when I just open it up from the side they are not there by default which is weird since the other options are - and it's not like I can make it wider- so it does seem confusing. Just going to put up both images in case anyone else ever has this issue.

I think the Faux Styles may have been left out of the Properties Panel because they do not produce proper vector output.

Proper vector output?

Photoshop is a raster program, sure it can utilize vectors but that's not what I'm concerned about when I'm using photoshop. I want the full ability to manipulate my image at to any degree.

What is stopping you? The question is about why two buttons which are available in the character panel are not duplicated in the properties panel.

"Photoshop is a raster program"

 

 

Photoshop is raster except where it is vector. Type in Photoshop is vector, thankfully. In the early days it was pixels on whatever layer was currently active.

Photoshop can output vector data in (at least) pdf, svg and eps; so vector output is a possibility with Photoshop and deserves consideration. 

If the presence of the faux-buttons in the Properties Panel matters to you a lot feel free to post a Feature Request over on

If you select a font that doesn't have a bold version, you can apply faux bold via the Character Panel fly-out menu.
