So, I built all my captions using the new captioning tool. Everything looked fine. I closed the file and left it for another day, I came bak today and my captions are still in the timeline, but I can't see them in the program monitor anymore. It shows up on my "source" monitor but not "program". Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
It could be that your captions are not "enabled" in the Program Monitor. If you click on the wrench icon under the Program Monitor, you can go to "Closed Captions Display" and then click Enable. [screenshot attached.]
If that doesn't do it, what kind of captions did you create? If they are "closed-captions" either 608 or 708, then you may have to go to "Settings..." under the Enable option, and change the setting to match. [screenshot attached.]
I hope that helps, and good luck!
Sorry for the late response... I've been trying all sorts of stuff, and nothing is working. I created open captions, I've made sure everything is enabled, I've reset work spaces, I've messed with all the options of the captions settings... It's weird. They show up in my source monitor, but not in my program monitor. Ughh... frustration!
Hi. It once happened to me that some captions had disappeared while others were still visible. The reason was merely that we had inadvertently changed the motion attributes (position) in the effects tab of the source panel, so the missing subtitles were now below the image's bottom line. Have you tried simply resetting the captions' position?
Adam you nailed it and yes I just had to enable it in the closed caption display settings. These settings can be found when pressing the wrench button under program monitor. I have spinning in circles all day, thanks mate.

MIght be a workspace issue.
Set it to a Premiere default workspace then,
Reset workspace to Saved Layout.
I stumbled upon this problem and I thankfully got my problem right
you have 3 options within the red circle. the BG color, Text color and edge color. what I did was made the edge opacity zero (eye dropper) and the caption was now visible. in my case even if the edge color was on 1% it would not show the text(compare to 1st picture where the edge color is zero)
What if I need to have an edge on my text? I'm currently having this same issue where my text will not show up if I've added an edge... but I need the edge... Can't find a solution to this anywhere. Help !!
Joshua, Sorry that I did not see your response the other day. Thanks for sharing your observation. I had never noticed that you can set the opacity of the edge/stroke.
But the essential effect of setting the edge opacity to zero is to turn off the edge: Even at 1% opacity, the edge (pixel width) is still set. As soon as you set it to zero, the edge also changes to zero.
I have been unable to see this problem, but I noted that you were using Airfly font. I tried it, and sure enough, setting even an edge of 1 (with any level of edge opacity) results in the open caption text not showing. If there is a background, it still shows.
Regular (graphics) text does not show this problem. Adding an edge to Airfly text there does not result in it not showing.
