A clue for Adobe ...?
This bug appears when the dropdown for Kerning is [empty].
It seems the dropdown is trying to default to some erroneous value -from- empty.
I selected 2 text objects, one Optical kerning, one Metric kerning. This causes the Kerning dropdown to display as blank.
If you click the dropdown, then try to click or arrow-key to a value, it causes the error.
If you press the "O" key, the value immediately jumps to Optical. Sometimes I get the error popup, sometimes not, but either way the Kerning is set to Optical for the text objects.
Once there is a value set, the dropdown works fine.
Please please fix, it's making me insane.
