    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'm here in august 2022 because I had the same thing. Part of the video needs one style and the other part needs another. I transcribed to a new layer and changed style and was done in a couple of minutes. Then I could only pick and choose which part to show. After reading through I see that I'm not dumb, just that this isn't available to do? So I spent the next 15 minutes clicking through and changing the style for part #2 one click at a time... This is the dumbest thing. Imagine this " oh in the next update we remove the ability to mute a track because we don't want someone to accidentally forget to unmute it before exporting. Oh, we got rid of the ability to color grade because we didn't want someone to accidentally export with bad exposure.

    We are professionals, not children. Stuff gets messed up and it's on the editor. Leave this kind of stuff to windows movie maker, we pay a lot of money to have professional tools and flexibility.
