I have a new Mac running Sierra 10.12.6 with a PS CC install. Kerning does not work for any font - the options are all grayed out regardless of what preferences I choose. This worked on my old Mac with Sierra and I thought I set all the PS settings exactly the same. What am I missing? I can't finish a project without this feature. Thanks for any insight.

Howdy Kendra,

That is weird.  I'm not having any trouble on either of my machines and I play with text all the time.

This might be a workflow issue.  In order to set the kerning, you must place your insertion point between two characters.  If you try to select a run of text, it won't work -- use tracking for a run of text.

Hope that helps,
David

That was completely it! That you for sorting out my user error moment. Funny how I never ran into that before. Hopefully this will help someone else someday. :)
