When I click window > captions, and try to edit the caption import settings, I don't have a button at the bottom of the panel that says caption import settings. There are no buttons and no ways to visit these settings. I have 2018. What can I do?
Captions workflow and UI has been overhauled in a very recent release: are you able to upgrade?
Was it working before? Or are you following a tutorial, which shows the button but you cannot see it?
Hi thanks for your reply. I'm mid project so I can't update now, it's recommended to not update when still working on a project correct? I have never needed to access these settings before. I'm trying to import a caption file for the first time. I am following this tutorial, https://youtu.be/tfc5xNPMQt0 and trying to adjust the default import settings before importing my first srt file.
no reason why you can't update and see if it solves your problem, if not, you can revert to the previous version.
One thing ... there's an option on updates, "remove prior version" ... if you see that, uncheck it. This way you can keep all previous versions you have installed active.
As noted, there is no longer an Import Settings button. Click on the Captions workspace. Create or select the sequence you will be working in. When you do the import, it allows you to select the type of caption stream.
Many of the other settings can be specified after import by using the styling options in the Essential Graphics panel. You can create a Track Style and apply that.
The tutorial you posted illustrates the Transcription function that is NOT YET available.
