    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 :)

    This does not seem like good design at all. Watch the movie Everything Everywhere all at once on Prime, By default there are english captions translated from the spoken mandarin and cantonese in yellow, then switch on subtitles, the parts spoken in chinese are still in yellow, but they are given the indicators for which language is spoken. Other captions are added in white, within the same track. It is just not that easy to achieve something like this. Currently it's possible to change an individual clips coloring or font style, but if you try to save that style apply it to a single clip suddenly that style gets applied to the entire track, overwriting any individual coloring given. If you try to copy and paste the caption clips their individual colors do not get copy and pasted

    Yeah this is annoying that you can't do this, the best you have is selecting a single clip and changing it's color property, but if you try to create and reuse a "style" that style gets applied to every clip on the track. And I had two versions of the same sequence and I restyled all the individual clips, but then when I went to copy and paste from one sequence to the other (so as not to have to go through the tedious process of recoloring individual clips) it just pasted with a uniform style, that doesn't even match the default style that I had started with!

    It's the most annoying thing, I just assumed that it would work that any properties I added into my Mogrt, I added one slider, one point control, and one position control, and I spent quite a while in expressions getting these three controls to control the precise look of a template I wanted to animate dynamically against the dialogue in Premiere. Spending all that time to discover that I can't do anything in Premiere is REALLY frustrating. Nothing shows up as keyable (not even the position control) Now with my time left I have to decide between reengineering my set up, turning my whole PR sequence into an After Effects project, or sticking with a static sequence that does nothing I intended it to. I also wanted to use this in the future, as each video I reuse this template with will have different timings and different values. REALLY frustrating.
