    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 :)

    Being able to see multiple subtitle tracks is definitely necessary. 3 things:

    1. I make videos for people speak different languages. If there are no 2 subtitles in 2 languages, these people cannot watch the video together and understand it together. They will have to watch the video separately with subtitles in their own languages. This builds a communication barrier.

    2. I always use voice recognition software to automatically generate subtitles in different languages. In the old version, I can just drag subtitles in different languages to a timeline, and align them whatever way I want. This is no longer an option. I have to type in different languages manually in all text boxes through out the whole video. It could kill you when you are working on an hour-long documentary.

    3. Please make multiple tracks of subtitles available.
