Position of captions/subtitles in the frame

When using the captions/subtitles in Premiere, it's impossible to move the text outside of the text safety area.

For "Open captions", the Y position is blocked at 83,8% and for "Closed captions" the Y parameter  is blocked at 15.

But the text saftey area makes sense on old TV sets. Today, on the Web and on modern TV sets, you see almost 100% of the picture.

It would be nice to allow to move the text -at least- to the border of the "action safety" area.

Why? Because when you have a video with texts, banners or key words in the picture, you need to position your subtitles lower in the frame. 

The only option to achieve this is to use the "position" effect and move the whole subtitles track down. But it works for Open Captions only, not for Closed Captions.

For those reasons, until now I really prefer to use the text in "Essential Graphics" to create my subtiltes.

Closed Caption have to follow certain rules. Hence not being able to change the parameters.

I did not realize you could not access the "effect controls" for a closed caption stream. And, yes, as Ann points out, it makes sense. Any regular system displaying closed captions will apply the standards to them.

 

And even though modern displays show more of the screen, you will find that some caption standards recommend not placing captions in the edges.
