•If you do not know the right duration of your project, enter a large duration.
To be able to create subtitles, you need to create a track first.
There are different kinds of tracks, but in most of the cases you will work with subtitles tracks.
To create a subtitles track, use menu Track / Create / Add new empty subtitles track.
In the explorer tab you can see your projects and the tracks you have created.
You can right-click an element to display its context menu.
If you want to create subtitles, you need to activate the track first.
Only one track can be active at a time. The active one is displayed in the explorer with a red highlight.
To activate a track, double-click its icon, or click Use in its context menu.
There are several ways to create a subtitle:
•In the timeline, right-click on the track to display its context menu, and select Add new subtitle.
•Or use shortcut F5.
Once you have created a subtitle, you can use the subtitle editor tab to modify it.
