Subtitle editor jumping to the first line.

Every time I play or scrub the video to hear what people are saying the subtitle edit window jumps up to the first line. It's easy to solve just by scrubbing back to the previous written line in the timeline, but why is this a feature at all? I'm editing a two-hour long video with a lot of conversation and the jump, plus having to click in the window on the right line, not once but twice and going back to where I was, is adding HOURS of work.

  • Why can't the editor just stay at the line I was  working with latest? 
  • Why can't I go to the right line in the subtitle editor just by clicking on it in the timeline, and from there just be able to start editing without double-clicking on the right passage?

Also, the lag rises suspiciously much just by opening the subtitle editor, but that may just be my computer. Yes I'm using a Proxy.

I have now updated to 15.1 and I can't make this happen. Are you still on 15.0? If I play or scrub or click in the timeline, and with starts/stops, the Text Panel (what you are referring to as the subtitle edit window/subtitle editor) scrolls so that the caption that shows in the Program Monitor is also shown in the Text Panel. It does not go to the top of the list unless I go to that point. Some users have found that it is easier to use the timeline/Program Monitor for edits and use the key...

Some users have found that it is easier to use the timeline/Program Monitor for edits and use the keyboard shortcuts. See this thread:

Thank you Stan.

The shortcuts are a life saver. I'm stilll at 15.0 on a work computer with some odd restrictions to updates. Just hope the Swedish version of Creative Cloud will update me soon.

Again, thank you for the reply. This work in particular is wearing me down.
