    This is not a bug, it’s as designed. We specifically limit the visibility to one track at a time to avoid accidentally burning in multiple tracks. Also, when exporting to a format that only supports one captions stream like SRT or STL, we need to know which is the active track in order to export the correct track.

    But I understand why you might need two tracks visible at the same time.

    Multiple speakers:
    If we could automatically identify speakers and designate a style associated with them, would that help? For example speaker 1 is blue and on the left, speaker 2 is yellow and on the right?

    Multiple languages:
    Do you ever need to burn in both at the same time or is it just a matter of being able to see both to aid in translation and alignment?

    Thanks for the feedback, we really are listening :)

    Thank you for the reply, Francis. I can speak on the questions of multiple languages.

    We don't always post our videos in a location where the captioning can be turned on/off or switched to different languages, so we need to have it visible and in both languages. The majority of videos I've created since Adobe removed the option for me to have multiple captions have been ones where I need to have multiple languages because they are in large areas like schools.

    Currently, I have to export the file with one set of captioning, import that video, mute/hide all other layers, activate the second set of captioning, and export that file for the final version. It's a time-consuming process, especially when trying to be efficient in a workflow.
