Way text kerning is not working in my FCP X, text kerning is grayed out so I can't us it.
I also try in Motion 5 and text kerning it is grayed out.

This is a bug or what.

Yes, you're right, there seems to be a bug with Kerning in both FCPX and Motion 5. In FCPX it is working it just takes time to update. You'll notice that if you adjust something you won't see a result but if you then switch to another parameter and then back to Kerning, the kerning value then updates.

Motion is worse though, sadly. Kerning does not work at all. I know bugs are not always easy to find but I have to say that I find it hard to believe a company like Apple released a Motion Graphics application where a basic but essential component of Typographic control is completely broken. I'm not sure what their testing processes are but you'd think these would be the most important fundamentals to test before shipping?

cheers,

Angie

The behaviour actually seems a bit more bonkers than you've described, Angie.

If I change the Font parameter, in Motion 5, any Kerning changes will suddenly appear! Have you tried that?

The kerning slider is broken but the keyboard shortcut (Control-left/right arrow) works fine.
