all i want to do is have it align to the outside. Why does this button not work, it does nothing.

Also the appearance panel is completely broken, it doesnt show ANYTHING.

BIG TEXT SO YOU LISTEN 

 

I'm going to lose a commission job because of the constant horendous bugs ive been encountering with your software adobe.

Constant bugs and braindead UI choices make your software a chore to use even for the most basic tasks.

The many years ive been using your software has been a nightmare and the experience has been actively worse each year to the point where it feels like im actively fighting just to get any functionality from this.

This is primatily a user Forum, so if you want to shout at the Illustrator team or at Adobe it is not the ideal place. 

 

Could you please post screenshots with ALL the pertinent Panels visible. 

Live text has limited Stroke options, have you tried using Type > Create Outline (cmd-shift-O) to work around that?

If you need to maintain editable text using Symbols would provide an alternative. 

 

Edit: Come to think of it applying the Stroke to the text and then »Add New Fill« may work out just as well.

When you say that the appearance panel shows nothing, do you mean literally nothing, or this:

If its the latter, double-click on 'Characters' to see the appearance at the Type level rather than Object level.

If you see literally nothing, please show a screenshot.
