I'm looking for a way to change a character in my default font. I use the font family Proxima Nova (an Adobe font, what I have activated). In InDesign you can choose between two character for the letter 'a'. There I can change the font with find glyph en replace it for the other one. This is an extra action I make for all my designs.

It would be awesome to set that letter 'a' as a default a in that typefont. Because I can only use the right one in InDesign. Adobe Photoshop don't has that option. Is there a way to change a character and set it as my default character in that font. So that I can use it in all my Adobe programs?

Howdy Daniel,
You can use Stylistic Alternates and Stylistic Sets to accomplish sorta what you want, if the font supports it.  Alternates just allow you to have different versions of character.  Sets allow you to choose which with some finesse, though I don't know one that fits what you're trying to do off the top of my head.
Thanks,David
