Apply Alternate OpenType Glyphs

Some OpenType fonts have an extended character set, which means that for some characters (also known as Glyphs), there are alternate designs. Here’s a quick and easy way to see and apply any alternates that are available for a selected glyph:

Open the Glyphs palette (Window> Glyphs). Select a glyph in your text and then choose “Alternates for selection” from the pop-up menu in the Glyphs palette.

To replace the existing character with any available Alternate, just double-click the Alternate in the Glyphs palette.
