Currently captions cannot go beyond safe margins
Please make it flexible for the editor to move the auto transcripted caption layer beyond the safe margins.

I agree with Justin. I have a similar requirement like Arun. I need to burn in the captions such that they are right at the topmost part of the video. Since I am pretty sure the end product will be played entirely from the computer, I don't think the safety margins are necessary.
Please allow the customization, put a warning dialog box in to alert unknowing users if necessary
Otherwise, for users who know what they are doing and need to do so, it will be great to have that override

I need this as well. We produce localized videos for other markets, and almost always require subtitles below the safe margins due to un-alterable lower thirds placement.
As it's all web video, safe margins aren't really a necessary adherence.
srt export was broken in Beta builds from about a week ago. It should be fixed in the latest Beta build (Pr 15.0 x Beta 024) which you can update to using your CC desktop app.
The screenshot you attached helped us to understand what you are seeing. Could you maybe attach another one to show us how you want it to look? The caption bumpers you are hitting are at just 5% of the Program Monitor frame area, which leaves very little room for readable text outside of that area.

I am trying to subtitle an entire webcast. The core content is appearing within the safe margins and our visual identity requires us to place the subtitle to the bottom of the screen. I tried adjusting the position of the subtitle, but it doesn't go beyond the safe margins. Also, since the caption doesn't appear in a separate layer in the timeline, I cannot manually adjust the position as well. Also, the export to srt function appears to be not functioning in this beta. We prefer more control over the caption's position, scale etc...
Nevertheless, the transcripting fuctionality is **** cool and greatly useful. A little more control and it is awesome.
Thank you for your feedback, Arun. It's good to see folks using our new captions workflow already and we're interested in helping people have the best experience possible. Can you tell us more about the workflow which requires you to move a caption outside of safely visible areas in the Program Monitor?
