A "glyph" is merely the term for a specific character in a font file.

Photoshop, unlike other Adobe applications, has no Glyph panel. While it can display and utilize glyphs if they are present, there is no way to access a specific glyph from within Photoshop.

Both Illustrator and InDesign have Glyph Panels which allow you to see and access all glyphs present in a font.

So the short answer.... Photoshop has no way to access glyphs.

Thank you. Ugh. =( –  user20379 Mar 3 at 20:32

As stated, there is no Glyphs menu in Photoshop.
However, there are OS system tools you can use to get these characters out of a font file.

Windows has a Character Map utility that you can use to copy right from that program, into a text box within Photoshop. To access the Character map you go to...
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools:

And here is a link to how to access the equivalent on a Mac.

Hope this helps a bit.

I believe that this only works for glyphs encoded with a Unicode value. Unencoded glyphs won't show up in Windows, and depending on the version won't show up in Mac. feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/… –  Alan Shutko Mar 3 at 22:29
