    You are probably better off using InDesign.

    Some basic settings is in Window > Character (the bottom row with st icon). You'll get more options in InDesign, though. There's been around a petition asking Adobe to make the UI the same across all of their software.

    If you compose your text in Illustrator, then you can copy and paste into Photoshop and it will keep all the glyphs and alternates the same. This lets you use any glyph in the font since Photoshop has no glyphs palette. Note this only works properly from Illustrator and not from InDesign or other programs.

    Photoshop isn't meant to be used for typesetting, which is why they purposely don't include a lot of the broader typesetting options easily available in Illustrator and InDesign. Your best bet is to typeset in Illustrator and export / copy paste into Photoshop.

    Me personaly, always use illustrator for text, and then copy-paste to ps.
    I know, it is slowing down process, but sometimes best solution. :D
