Whenever I use the captions feature, it completely breaks this software. What's bizarre is it was working perfectly a few days ago and now it won't work at all. Whenever I open the captions workspace and start editing the captions, it will be alright. Then, when I drag the captions to change the length and then try to scrub through the timeline, the preview window completely freezes, meaning I can't view my project anymore. After a few more seconds of that, the preview window will go black, and the audio of the video is the only thing that plays. The rest of the program also becomes laggy. Restarting Premiere will fix it, only for it to break again as soon as I try to use captions.
I really need this feature, and I don't have time to ditch this pos software and learn something else. I've already tried resetting cache and workspaces, restarting PC and reinstalling Premiere. Any other help would be great. I can't believe I pay money for this lmao.
