Captions are displaying twice, and the second one can't be turned off
I'm on the new version of Premiere, and I have a 608 track that can be enabled and edited as designed. However, rendering OVER that in the Program Monitor are the same titles again in the style of 608 captions of Premiere 14.x. There seems to be no way to toggle these titles off, and they do not respond to editing the caption text. However, if I edit the text, save the project, close it and reopen it, the old style 608 titles will reflect whatever changes I had made before reopening the project.
If it helps, I notice the old style 608s disappear whenever I go into caption text edit mode directly in the program monitor. They reappear back over top of everything as soon as I leave the text box.

Still an Issue here. Can´t get rid off the displayed cations in several projects.
When adding cations layer, this is displayed under the unwanted and therefore is not readable.
Only in the program window, not on export, but I have to see, what I do.

Same problem. Very frustrating.

Same issue here. Just updated to the latest version of Premiere Pro. Now i have to uninstall and go back to a previous version just so I can have functioning caption tools. Thanks for the headache, Adobe. Smh.

I have the same issue.

I have an issue with the latest update where all of my captions are appearing as open captions. Uploading 3 screens but I'm told my settings are accurate. Problem is not occurring in Premiere 2020

I started to experience the same displaying 2x bug as soon as I upgraded to 15.1.0
Evan Panikkar commented
Same here. That's why captions for broadcast editors seems to be easier on 14 (dealing with .srt files).

The 2020 Premiere Closed Captions were better. I mean Closed Captions....not Sub-Titles. There needs to be a great deal of improvement in Captions. 2020 Premiere works better.

PLUS I can "select all" and delete everything on the timeline and the ghost captions remain (Mac 10.15.7, 128 GB Ram, Dual Radeon Pro W5700X)

Nick Condera's screencap is an accurate reflection of my timeline setup.

This bug is still present in 15.2.

We're having the same issue

Same thing here, but I was working with 708 Service 1. The captions exported fine. However, AFTER exporting my .mp4 and the .SRT file, I got a duplicate caption overlay showing up in my Program Monitor.
The duplicate does NOT display upon subsequent exports in the final product, so it's not a critical issue. But it is a bit of a paint point when I'm still editing. If I toggle the CC track visibility off, the duplicate overlay still remains.

Premiere 15, Build 41
This happens on two different machines. Second set of captions only appears after project is closed, then re-opened. Second set does NOT appear on rendered mp4.

Same problem. Screenshot here:

Same problem here. Even though I delete everything in the timeline the legacy closed caption is still showing. Adobe remove everything from user interface but forgot to remove from the implementation.

I have had the same issue, don't know how to disable the captions showing on program monitor.
Matthew Brawley commented
I have had this same problem since the most recent update. Also, when outputting, the captions no longer hold their timing. For a 60 second spot the captions were finished by :40... everything 'condensed' and a few gaps were also created that were not on the timeline. I've had to redo my most recent project using an older version of Premiere just to get it out with correct captions.

Can you post a screen cap of your sequence showing the captions (not just the program monitor)?
