Please post a video about how to edit subtitles. I easily figured out how to tweak the text and use the designer features to make it all look pretty. I need help with adjusting the timing for certain subtitle blocks or deleting blocks. Thanks!

I am also looking for this video. I can’t get my subtitle sounds to play in the editor, and I don’t know if this is a bug or if I am doing something wrong.

Hey Angela. I will post here when it is ready in about an hour or so.

Let me know if you have questions. This is just for editing text. Working on the other features and hope to have all the tutorials updated this week.

Thanks, Craig! I’m looking forward to some help with adjusting timing. It sounds like that one’s in the works.

I figured out how to adjust timing. I was trying to type in a new time code at the start or stop of any subtitle block but that doesn’t work. Instead, use the up/down arrows to the right of the subtitle window to increase or decrease the time for that block. When you increase a block to the point that it “swallows” the next block, you’ll get a warning and an option to delete that next block.
I prefer to have a few lines of text on the screen for a longer period of time, rather than exactly matching my words phrase for phrase. This up/down arrow business lets me do that. Once you get on a roll, it goes pretty quickly.

Awesome. I have some features coming that will make it even easier. That whole system is pretty much the first iteration of it, so stay tuned! 🙂

Thanks for letting me know about your question. Anything else you are stuck on, please reach out.
