Please add an option to turn on or off ligatures into the various text edit controls. Currently:
The caption tool has ligatures turned on when importing a file and reportedly ligatures off if entering new text. No option to toggle.
The new title tools has ligatures turned on and no option to toggle.
The Legacy Title tool has ligatures turned off and no way option to toggle.
The use of ligatures or not as desired in a consistent way requires workarounds particularly when it comes to captions, diminishing the usability of the caption feature.

This is so needed! Bluntly, text design and use is getting more and more sophisticated and detailed, and for brand identity & such this is an absolute requirement.

Why are there not 1000 votes on this?? Being able to create titles in PP is worthless if you have to create titles in other applications in order prevent ligatures to maintain branding guidelines.

Come on Adobe why is this still an issue? Every other CC app has this control.
If its too much to ask then save ligatures for books and turn it off by default. Ligatures rarely look good on screen, if ever. Maybe make it a preference...

Yes please. I've written corporate style guidelines which state all ligatures should be turned off, yet I can't do it myself in video captions. Bit embarrassing to say the least.
ADOBE!! WE NEED THIS

PLEASE add this for the love of all that is holy. I cannot type out the word "film" without it automatically making a ligature from 'f' and 'i'. It's maddening and such a seemingly simple fix. GIVE US A CHECKBOX.
This would be extremely beneficial, as my company's official typeface is very difficult to use in Premiere because of this problem.

Need this ... Our corporate font is wrecked by the new essential graphics panel. Forced to the legacy titler.
Please do this! Thanks :)
