How To Type Special Alternative Character Glyphs On Your Mac

Some advanced fonts have alternative versions of characters called glyphs that are used automatically with specific letter combinations. You can also access these special glyphs individually if you know where to look in Pages, TextEdit and Microsoft Word.

    Thank you. This particular article addressed perfectly a question I have been laboring over for a couple years.

    This did not help me as the font I want to access the glyphs says that it does not offer any typographic features. However I can see that there are many different letter styles in the font and many characters. The only letters I can access at this point are the first list ? there must be a way !!!!!

    Tal: Perhaps the font just has those as completely separate characters?
