There are unmapped keyboard shortcuts for "Split caption segment under CTI" and "Merge selected caption segments." When mapped, they do nothing. I had previously added "Edit selected caption text," which operates correctly.
Methods that work as expected include the Split caption and Merge captions buttons in the Text Panel, and the razor tool and Ctrl+K (with the Caption Track targeted).
Note: I did find menu equivalents for some of the commands that have keyboard shortcuts under Sequence -> Captions. There are several commands there. But these are not in the list. Should they be?
Steps to reproduce:
1. Map the two commands above to Ctrl+Alt+Y (Split) and Ctrl+Alt+U (Merge) (Yes, remember to click OK.)
2. Place the CTI in the desired location; press Ctrl+Alt+Y.
3. Select two adjacent captions; press Ctrl+Alt+U.
Result: Nothing happens.
Expected: The caption under the CTI should split; the two captions selected should merge.
Application: Premiere Pro (Beta) v188.8.131.52
OS: Windows v10.0.19041, RAM: 23.99 GB, CPUs (logical): 8
These are both "Application" shortcuts, so they should work in the Text panel and Timeline panel. Unfortunately, we still have an open issue to get these two shortcuts working in the Timeline panel.
As far as adding these to the Sequence menu > Captions options, I'm not sure if it was intended to add all Caption shortcut options to the menu or not. That said, I will add a request.
Thanks again for the feedback!
As a user, I expected they would work ... and it's frustrating that they don't work as expected.
Understood, thanks Neil.
