Premiere is not allowing me to add new captions.  I start with a new project, add one clip to sequence, add captions (have tried 608 & Open Captions), drop it on sequence and double-click on captions.  Caption panel comes up but it is impossible to get any captions to show up in Captions panel to actually add/edit captions.  Watched multiple videos on adding captions and do exactly same thing but captions do not show up in captions panel.

Using Premiere Pro 2017.0.1 V11.0 Build 11.0.1 (6)

Based on my trying to find a work around for hours, I am suspicious this is a product bug but seems to be big issue to be a real bug so looking for help as am really stuck.

Hi coreyh,

Sorry that you have this issue!

Caption panel comes up but it is impossible to get any captions to show up in Captions panel to actually add/edit

Do you see a blank Captions panel?

This might help:

If you see a blank Captions panel, which is grayed out, right click on the caption in the Timeline and see if you're able to add a new caption.

Here is the video for reference: captions - YouTube

Let us know if that helps.

Thank you for the reply.  Unfortunately, that does not solve the problem.  I can right click on the caption in my sequence and choose Add Caption which puts a caption in sequence display but still nothing shows up in the Captions panel and hence I can't actually put any text in for the caption.  It seems that every road leads to needing the captions panel and no combination of steps gets that done.  I continuing to try to look for work-arounds before having to abandon Premiere over what would seem like a pretty significant bug.

Any additional suggestions welcome.

I can't figure this out either. I have to use YouTube's caption option instead now, but I'd like to hear if anyone can make this work out in Premiere?

Sebastian,

 

I have no problem with this issue. Since this is a very old thread, I suggest starting a new one.

 

Either way, post a screenshot of the Caption panel and timeline.

 

If you are seeing a caption in the stream on the Timeline and not seeing a caption in the Caption Panel, you can try resetting the workspace (Window -> Workspaces -> Reset to Saved Layout) and/or resetting Preferences (start Premiere while holding down alt and shift).

 

Stan
