fix closed captions
It's 12:01AM and I would have been finished with my edit hours ago if it were not for the numerous bugs related to closed captions. I'll just list one here: edits in the captions are not reflected in the program monitor. I can create a new caption or change the timing of a caption, and it will not be shown when I play the video. I can delete words and the captions will not re-center themselves (okay, that's a separate bug, but worth mentioning here too). And sometimes the formatting is just completely wrong. The spacing will be too tight between lines and adjusting Line Spacing has no effect. These bugs have been in Premiere for years now from what I've read. Why are they not fixed by now?

Totally the same - I have spent HOURS on captioning things - like a whole DAY just to do a 20-minute video (and even then I have had to come back to it the next day). I have resorted to buying a caption editor, but when i reimport the file, the timings are all knocked out for some unknown reason. It's just a mess.
