    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 :)

    I frequently need to burn in multiple languages at the same time for subtitling. Right now, I have to burn one language subtitle, then export the video, create a new sequence, then add the second set of subtitles for the second video. It is quite laborious and could be solved by simply allowing to burn two files at once.

    Also, davinci resolve simply lets you select both tracks, and when you click export, the tracks are exported as separate SRT files. THis is a very simple solution to the SRT problem mentioned above.
