I've observed that "Alternates for selection" (AFS) behavior varies amongst Adobe programs. Although that shouldn't come as much of a surprise, I'm intrigued if there's a solution because I'm working on releasing a Variable remaster that includes a ton of alternates. InDesign and Illustrator both function as expected when using "Alternates for selection."
I gave a few of the Adobe fonts I had loaded a try. AFS was provided by a few, but not by all. Is there something Photoshop is looking for in the OTF code? The sample fonts were installed via Adobe Fonts, thus I am unable to open them to analyze them.
I'm using "FEA syntax (compatible with AFDKO 2.5 and FLS 5.1)"
Has anyone had this experience? Is this merely a Photoshop glitch or a Adobe software team dynamic?
