  1. Restore abillity to define default caption import settings

    In previous versions, you could define the import settings for captions. If you did that, and then updated to 15.1, you now have no ability to change it. So for the rest of time every time I open captions they will first import as "century gothic size 40 open captions" unless I go back to an earlier version and change that.

    It's fairly easily deal with the "style" and change that after import. But there were many other elements to the previous import settings dialogue. In any event, getting a) import settings and/or b) controlling the default import style would…

  3. View more than one caption track at once.

    I'd like to be able to view more than one caption track at once in the new Captions workflow (Premiere Pro 2021 v15 and on).

    In my case, I'm creating both English and Spanish subtitles as separate SRT files, and it would be helpful to be able to have both visible at once, on different parts of the screen, so that I can match the timing of each track.

  5. Export transcript to text file with timestamps

    When transcribing a file within Premiere and exporting the result to a text file, it would be extremely helpful for that text file to include the timestamps.

  6. Arabic subtitles

    Typing or changing subtitles in arabic in the text window doesn't recognize the first letter of the sentence and places a rectangle instead. But moving to the window Essential graphics, in the sub tab "Edit" selecting that particular caption on the timeline then switching the mode from "Right to Left typing" to "Left to Right typing" then back to "Right to Left typing" solves the problem. I hope a solution can be brought to this matter. Thanking you.

  7. Copy pasting in captions removes first 2 characters

    Whenever I try to copy/paste or cut/paste captions into new lines, it removes the first two characters of my line.

  8. Captions should have an option for either one line or two lines

    For the last few weeks when I imported an SRT file the captions were on one line which was so much easier to work with. Now for some reason when I import it's back to 2 lines with a paragraph space in the middle. The split feature does not split my caption into lines, but splits it into 3 separate duplicates of the 3 lines, which is absolutely useless and hassle. Even when I remove the carriage return it still duplicates 3x.

  9. Hard to edit captions at the end of the sequence

    I can easily double-click caption entries in a a sequence except when I get to the last remaining captions at the end. It's nearly impossible to trigger the edit box in the Captions window for captions at the end of a sequence. This seems like a bug.

  11. Short Cut Key Needed for 'add new captions segment'

    If you're manually transcribing the new update is super clunky to use.

    You have to stop typing after every segment and hit the plus button with your mouse!!! It makes the process so slow and cumbersome.

    The old version you just hit enter or return and it created a new segment.

    Also in the text window can it just be a single click to edit the text instead of a double click please?

  12. v15.0 MXF OP1a embedded closed caption missing on export.

    From another post I can confirm that with Loudness effect selected, no embedded captions are included in the export file. Unselect Loudness and embedded captions are present in the export file. This is not an acceptable workaround, please repair this asap.

  13. More words on screen in captions created from transcription

    In Premiere Pro Beta, when creating captions from an automatic transcription, the resulting captions sit on only one line, with only 6 or 7 words on screen at a time. I would like the option to make the automatically generated captions sit on two lines, to show more words on the screen at a time. Presently, choosing different styles when the captions are generated from the transcript does not change the number of words on screen at a time.

  14. Duplicating CEA 608 closed captions to the 708 track

    I need to have both 608/708 closed captions on my outputs, to deal with different broadcasters. I cannot "cut & paste" between the tracks, to duplicate the track info. I've figured out that I can "cut" the 608 track into the clipboard, then move the current 608 track data up to the 708 track, and then "paste" the original 608 info back onto the 608 track, but that's not exactly intuitive.

  15. CEA-608 Background should be black, not defaulted to opaque

    When someone builds CEA-608 captions, it should default to a solid black BG. On my system it defaults to fully transparent, which quite frankly nobody is going to use for closed captions. It took me quite a while to figure out that transparent is the default, because "background" shows as "black", but you then have to force it to go into opaque mode within the menu. If it's opaque, it should show as "Opaque" rather than "Black", with a feature turned on making it opaque!

  17. When I use "Speech to Text", it freezes when I try to nest a sequence.

    If you have created a transcript using the "Transcript" option in the "Text" panel, you will not be able to drag and drop the sequence onto an empty sequence. If you try to do so, Premiere will freeze.
    This problem can be avoided by adding a caption track to the incoming sequence.
    But the hassle stinks.

    ”テキスト”パネルの”トランスクリプト”で書き起こしを作成したシーケンスは、空のシーケンスにドラッグアンドドロップすることができません。これを試みるとPremiereがフリーズします。
    この問題は受け入れる側のシーケンスにキャプショントラックを追加することで回避することは出来る。
    しかし面倒が臭い。

  18. Transition Dissolve on Captions

  19. Captioning

    Hi...when I select "Transcribe" I get a screen with "Speaker 1" and my different lines of text. Why are some lines longer and some shorter? When I then choose "Create Captions" it breaks the lines up into much smaller more uniform line lengths. How is this happening? Can I change some default settings at this point? This is great...but...our client has strict guidelines we must follow. 64 character limit (give or take a few) and two lines when possible. It would be great when we choose "Create Captions" to be able to set up some of these default settings. 64…

  20. Set Captioning character length

    Hi...loving Captioning so far. Our Government client, has specific guidelines to follow. We need to be able to set the character limit per section to 64. They also require two lines. I was able to get two lines and to fine-tune the layout with vertical and horizontal controls but it would be great at the start of the process when you select "Transcribe Sequence" to have personal settings that could be saved and reused. After I hit Transcribe I come to the first screen that shows the Captions. Perhaps this area is where we could have the option to set…
