    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 a situation where the style of the caption needs to change part way through a video. Since styles are applied to the entire caption track, the easiest way to do this seemed to be to create a new caption track with the alternative style on it, but the auto-disable is really messing it up for me. I'm not having to burn the first captions into the video, re-import into the project, and then add the second style of captions. Seems like a very long workaround, and an absolute nightmare for making changes.
