You need to use Adobe software to access the glyphs (Illustrator, Photoshop).

With Photoshop it is a bit cumbersome, but you can still do it!  I am on a Mac with Photoshop CS3, so it may be slightly different if you are on a PC or have a different version of Ps.

Make sure the character palate is open (window > character).

Select the letter you want to change.

Then click on the icon in the top right of the window that is three lines.

Hover over “OpenType” and then you can select or deselect the different options. Play around because you can get different swishes.

If you have a Mac, you can use a program like PopChar to do it more efficiently.

You can see all the glyphs in the character palate on a Mac, but you can’t do much more than that.
