Duplicating open captions - making edits on duplicate shouldn't affect original
When you duplicate an open, burned in, caption, the edits you make on the duplicate affect the original. In my situation, I need to make captions in multiple languages. So if I were able to duplicate a caption, put the duplicate on a track above, and edit the new caption according to the pacing and text blacks of the original caption clip, that would save a ton of time. Instead I have to start from scratch in each language.

That's kind of odd. I have used duplicate without this problem, I believe. One work around is to export the Open captions file for the first language, then export it as a .srt file. Reimport that with a new name and you should be ok. That's what seems to work. But there is still a lot of work to be done by Adobe with the open captions and import/export and everything else.

There is a use case where this is particularly annoying: captioning song lyrics. I'd like to get the timing for lyrics all arranged for a verse, duplicate the verse and enter in the lyrics for the second and other verses.
