Jorge Torres commented
same here, I´d rather ***** this *** software on a functional version than pay each month for a set of broken products!
It's back in 23.0.01 - What a pain
Same here. Mac and I have an updated version of Illustrator.

Same issue again but on a PC
I am having the same issue as well
Kerning is no longer functional in the current update of Illustrator. A previous user had this problem and the response claims that the bug has been fixed, but it is still not working.
Whenever I try to adjust the kerning of letters, I get this error message:
"Kerning on extended selections can only be set to Auto or 0. To modify spacing between multiple characters, use the Tracking option.
I am running Illustration version 22.1.
My Mac runs system 10.12.6.
I'm having the same issue, even with just the one text box. I'm trying to change the kerning to "Optical", but before I even have a chance to click on anything this warning comes up. I can't click okay or get out for the dialog box either. Many force quits later, this is getting very old.
I've encountered the pictured error/warning dialog box a couple of times now when trying to change attributes on a selection of several text boxes. I am actually only trying to set the value to '0', but it seems easy to trigger this error inadvertently.
Each time I have encountered it, I cannot click 'Okay'. It is impossible to dismiss the dialog box and I've had to force quit the application.
I am using CC2018 on a Mac with High Sierra.
