I get stuck with subtitles. I know how to make subtitles in Premiere, by using Captions. I know how to Create, Insert and adjust them. But I just don't see them appearing in the preview screen, the "Reference" screen. I tried changing position, color, the type (Pop-on, Roll-up 2 lines,...)
Remarkably, I can export them into a separate SRT file and this way I can use the exported media. But it would be nice to see them in Preview.
Is there anyone out there that can help me please?
Appreciate your quick response. I am using Adobe Premier Pro 2020 which may be my problem?
My caption steam is in the screenshot below:
I have selected "override file settings" and still no captions are showing. Are these settings correct now?
PS. Caption settings. Appreciate your help with this.
The screenshots are helpful. PR 2021 vs 2020 is not your problem.
Your override shows they should now be Open Captions. Your Caption Panel shows that stream is Closed 608. Your display settings are for 708.
Change the display panel to 608, and you should see the captions.
Import a different srt and see if that stream is now Open Captions. Open Captions ignore the display settings; they should always show in the Program Monitor.
If you don't need closed captions, you can change the 608 stream to Open Captions. Right click, Modify -> Captions. But you cannot change them back.
If this doesn't get you sorted, keep asking!
Thanks Stan! The captions are now showing thanks to your guidance. Now that they are showing, I see they look very far apart. Do you know how to make the kerning closer?
That is the way closed captions look in the program monitor. There is a limited number of characters per line. And the appearance on a user's TV set is determined by their settings, so you have limited control.
What is your final purpose? Burned in or embedded?
Hmm I see, that is a shame as the words are skewed. I'd like them burned in but I noticed that when I exported it, they didn't appear at all?
If you want burned in, change them to Open Captions.
Be sure that in the Export dialogue, you go to the Captions tab, and set them to "burn in."
Ah I see, thanks so much Stan. Your legendary help and guidance has made my job so much easier!

Can anyone please help me, I have no option to enable closed captions in the program monitor settings.. nor can I find the option in any drop down menus so it won't show in any renders? Thanks!
This thread is about PR 14.9. As indicated by your screenshot you are using PR 15.x. You no longer need the "enable" options to show 608/708 captions. And, as shown by your screenshot, your captions are showing in the Program Monitor.
The export options, as in PR 14.x, are set in the Export Settings dialogue (burn in, embed, sidecar).
Let us know if this does not answer your question.
