I am try to add captions through the captions panal in preimere pro. It worked in a video I made about 2 months ago but now I cant create new captions in both new projects and old ones.
I am placing a screen shot below.

The plus symbol does not show if your Text panel is not wide enough. Drag to the right, and you'll see it.
As you noticed, when you click the 3 dots, you see the additional items, including the "Add new caption segment." BUT, as you also noticed (and I did not know), it does NOT work. I tried:
Note that you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-C - "Add new caption segment at playhead".
Your old project did not work for two reasons: 1) you did not have access to the plus button, probably did not know about the keyboard shortcut, and 3 dots options does NOT work and 2) the CTI is in front of a caption segment, so does not allow for adding a new caption segment.
I also tested this in a recent Beta version, and it does not work there. If you file a bug report, add a link here. If I file one, I will.
Thank you so much for your response.
Widening the panal got the + to appear.
Here is a link to another thread I found on this topic after posting my own.
"Add new captions segment" should now be working with Premiere Pro 22.0 Beta build 132+ (should be posted to Creative Cloud in a day or so)
FYI, the oddity identified here (when the Text Panel is so narrow that there is no Plus button to add a caption, the 3 dot drop down "Add new captions segment" did not work) is fixed in Release version 21.1.1.
All 3 options now work: the Plus button, the drop down, and Ctrl+Alt+C.
