Chapter in this post:
With my wife, Adobe Photoshop has come up with a new thing to annoy her. Whenever she marks a text in a document with a double click in order to change it, the glyphs appear and ensure that she has to click away before she can continue with her work. The glyphs are alternative characters that could be used in place of the letter that was highlighted.
The Adobe page gives this information on glyphs in the help:
The Glyphs panel lets you insert punctuation, superscripts and subscripts, currency symbols, numbers, special characters, and other language glyphs into text in Photoshop.
Now you know what it is, but how do you get Photoshop to not show things up every time you highlight some text?
The matter is solved quite simply if you know where to act. Of course there is an option for this in Photoshop (we are running Adobe Photoshop 2021), but one has to find it first. Here is the corresponding way on the Mac:
Photoshop's suggestions are now a thing of the past and you can work normally again.
Funnily enough, this option was activated in Photoshop for me, but he has never suggested such glyph alternatives to me. I would imagine that this is an option that was accidentally enabled by one of the recent updates. After I switched the option off and on again, the suggestions came to me too - but still not every time the text layer was marked.
If you also have Photoshop problems, feel free to go to that Sir Apfelot Forum and asks for help there. I like to do some research and then write an article about the solution.
