Hi, 

I'm using the most recent version of Illustrator for Windows and I feel like you used to be able to click and drag in the kerning dialogue box number slor to change it within the character panel when you had two text characters selected. Was this removed or did I dream it up?

Wouldn't your cursor change to two opposing arrows when you hovered over the symbol of each?

I can see those sliders in Photoshop. In Illustrator you place the cursor between 2 characters and enter the value.

I can't recall ever seeing a slider bar to manually adjust kerning or tracking values of a text object in Adobe Illustrator. It's a decent idea though, given we have sliders to adjust axis values for Variable Fonts.
