    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 have had the exact same issue as others, with English and Arabic. I had to encode both scripts manually into the captions and try to manage sentences manually, with no way then to manage languages separately. See my screenshots. Painful, very manual and error prone, and I can't then easily turn on or off one language or another.

    I recently had a major project with bi-lingual subtitles : showing two languages simultaneously, one English and one in a non-Roman script. It was very difficult exercise to enter two languages and two script types as subtitles and manage consistency. Further If I want to show just one language I have to create new subtitles : very frustrating and time consuming. Please provide a solution!
