Re-enable free x-positioning of open captions (this worked in PPro2017)
This refers mainly to open captions for non-TV usage.
The position of captions does not allow for negative values anymore. So we are stuck with the left margin (x=0) being roughly at the standard "title safe" position. However, if your project is not limited by TV-standards and you want to use the entire screen width for subtitling, you can't. Any title will just go offscreen on the right with no way to re-center it. This was working in CC 2017 when PPro yould accept x values below zero. Please change this back again.

We have completely redesigned the captioning workflow in Premiere Pro version 15.0. You will see many dramatic workflow improvements. Please update to the latest version.

if there is a limit should be on the edge, this still very frustrating having to solve by creating a subsequence of the text, is not the best way in order to keep functionality of the captions
