When trying to change the stoke alignment on an object, even with the options available to clicked on, I am unable to.

The panel looks like this but when I click on any other alignment It reselects "align stroke to center"

    What kind of an object? Some objects can have only center aligned strokes.

    This should work, so please show the artwork and the appearance panel. We need to see what else is applied

    But this stroke is obviously aligned outside. What exactly is the problem with it?

    Like Monika says, your artwork looks as you would expect with those settings.

    But if you still have trouble with aligning strokes to anything other than centre, try doing Pathfinder (panel) Unite (+Apply) to the letter forms before you adjust the stroke.

    This ensures that all paths are closed.

    It sometimes (but rarely) happens that Create Outlines produces open paths.

    I've had this same thing happen to me at seemingly random occasions, with shape objects as simple as a rectangle. From the default center-align, it will sometimes not let me select inside-align although it's clearly an available option. Just now, the problem was solved by selecting the outside-align (which it allowed for no aparent reason), and then selecting the inside-align, which magically worked. My guess is that it has to be a bug with the program, as I made no change to the shape object.
