    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 :)

    Gonna echo this... Like Bryan said, why not just make a warning when exporting? There are tons of use-case scenarios where having multiple subtitle tracks visible at the same time is needed... honestly, kind of dumb to remove the option, why not just make it an extra click or two or an "opt-in" so users understand that 2+ tracks are now visible at the same time.

    Gonna have to maybe do Bryan's workaround to get this current video done...

    Also, this was originally brought up in March '21 and has 107 comments at the time of my comment, has any action been taken? Is this low-priority? The feature was already there previously, is it hard to roll it back? The more flexible the program is, there better experience for everyone using it.

    I appreciate how much captions have improved, so major kudos to that, but please bring back more than one visible subtitle track, or allow for burn-in text tracks specifically for situations like these
