CS6 Can't Kern Text in Win7 x64!!? How do I fix?

Feb 22, 2013 3:04 PM

I am unable to Kern any fonts in PS CS6! When I click the down arrow next to Kerning, the only options I have are Metrics, Optical, and 0... I can't manually adjust anything!!


I have tried turning cleartype on and off, I've tried setting the Text engine to Middle Eastern (Its default is East Asian).... I'm not sure what else to do...


Can someone please help!


Thanks all!

    Forgive me if you already tried this, but if you just click with the text tool on the document

    between two letters, the other options for kerning aren't available?

    You probably want to try Tracking (to the right of Kern in the character panel).

    Tracking works with selected text and manual kern only works between two characters.
