Why can't I "Add label columns to attribute table" and why can't I use "Letter spacing", "Word spacing" and so on? I have a shp-file. QGIS version 1.9

Same here. Looks like it is not yet implemented. – AndreJ Feb 6 '13 at 15:49
That's correct, they are unimplemented at this time. What's enabled is functioning and can be tested. There is currently a larger issue with the data defined functionality of the labeling engine. Once fixed, those options will begin to be worked on in the coming weeks. The 'master' branch is a work under development, not a stable release version. If you have questions about its current state, please ask on the developer mailing list, or download the source code and take a look inside. – dakcarto Feb 6 '13 at 17:09
