Could someone please tell me why my cursive font letters don't connect in Photoshop 12 when they WILL connect in other programs, even in Microsoft Word? Please help!

Hi Lani,

With most fonts, ligatures (the connection of cursive characters) is an Open Type feature. You must enable this feature to see the effect. By default most OT features are turned off.

Hope that helps. If not, please ping me for further assistance.

Thanks,
David

Thanks, David. After looking at photoshop elements 12 and Font Book (I have an iMac running on OS X 10.9.1), it's not evident to me how to turn on those OT features. Can you explain to me how I do that? Thanks!!
