Can't make open captions any more?

I've always used open captions on my videos and spent a long time getting to grips with the mechanics, but now it's not an option on the add caption track menu (closest thing is 'subtitles') and the panel is almost impossible to use - can't drag, resize or crop what I type, no short cut to add the next caption block, can't use ripple etc. What's going on?? If this is a recent update can I restore the old version? 💀

Are you using the Captions workspace?

You've updated to PR 2021 (version 15.0, or now the latest 15.1), and the caption workflow has been entirely revampled.

 

"Subtitle" is the equivalent of Open Captions. That's what you want if you are burning in subtitles. You can also export as srt and others.

 

First, take a look at the user guide for the new captions (and watch the short video), then ask questions back here.

Some things are not handled yet in the user guidel For an example, see this post that describes a better workflow:

Thank you Stan, that's helpful. Hopefully they add some functionality back on the next update!
