Caption File Presets

A caption file preset is a group of saved settings that can be applied to a new caption file in your synced projects. Settings that apply to things like segmentation, showing or removing speaker labels, timing offsets, font choices, file format options and more can be adjusted to improve the quality of your caption files.

Using presets saves you time when creating caption files. You can apply commonly used settings in a single click rather than adjusting them manually for each project. You can also favorite presets and they will automatically prepare caption files with your selected preset for new projects!
