Problem with captions

This problem comes and goes, but now I can't get it to stop.

When I try to change the length of a caption or move a caption on the timeline it disappears, and in the caption panel the in and out are the same. I can change the length in the caption panel and that works, but that's really tedious, especially since the In and Out on the caption panel doesn't match the timeline. Help!

I have not been able to create this problem, but a number of users report it.

 

I believe it is easier to time captions in Subtitle Edit or similar third party programs. Then import the srt to PR.

 

It may not always be possible, but one way to help PR is to add a temporary caption at timecode zero. Then the Caption Panel and Timeline at least match.

Thanks for the advice. I'm too far into this particular project to change
to Subtitle Edit, but I did download the program. But I can adjust the
length of the titles directly which works, if tedious.
