How can I adjust the Caption track height. It appears half size and I can't do anything to make it appear as it's normal height! Is it a bug?

Thank you

My screen is 27inch imac/Mojave. Now in toher computers it is working just fine. I tried to hide caption layer and show it again it worked I can see the layer height correctly. But then again couldn't get the result with teh same procedure. Trash was reset using Alt+shift when launching the app, deleted all preferences, etc. So, not sure why. Anyway, thank you.

I think it is not your "track height" as much as the text size in the caption segments. But I can't find any way to make the text size in the segment in the timeline anything other than "regular." Very odd.

 

And yes, the Caption tracks have no adjustments for height or ven the subtitles section.

You can adjust the Caption track height by holding Shift or Option/Alt and scrolling with the mouse wheel. See if one or two clicks on the wheel restores the original size of the Captions track.

I think there is an issue with the track height and font size. You can alt+scroll but its not ideal.

Learn someting new every day. And yes, Ann, these track height adjustments do affect the font size of the text in the timeline segment box.

 

Alt-scroll appears to affect a single track. Shift-scroll appears to affect all tracks equally. 

 

If the timeline panel is "short" enough relative to the number of caption tracks, a scroll bar does appear. It overlaps these functions. Not quite sure.

 

I now assume, as I think you do, Ann, that Carlo accidentally discovered this adjustment!

I found this:
Add more caption tarck,(e.g. 4 tracks), You will get more space for tracks
Resize caption tracks alt+scroll in header area
Delete the caption tracks, just leaving one.

It could be easier if you hit ` (grave) key to enlarge selected panel (in this case timeline panel). Hit again to resize to a normal
