I am using 1.2 here. I have no issue with kern/track. I do as follow:
1. Select text frame
2. Pick Content Tool
3. Put the cursor between any 2 letters of your headline
4. Go to Properties>Text>Kerning
5. Apply any value, say 10 pts just for the sake of seeing whether 
everything is ok.
You should see the difference.
As Christoph says, you can also select a few letters to apply an equal 
value to more letter at a time.
This is a pretty straightforward feature. Unless there is something 
wrong with your build, it should work fine.
