    MediaComposer 8.2 - Subcap - No linebreak no accent are possible

    Hello

    on my system (AVID MC 8.2, Mavericks 10.9.4, macbook pro 16gb ram), it is impossible to have line break within a subtitile using Subcap. As soon as you enter a line break, the second line desappear when you go to the next subtitle. The same happens with accent letters like "é". Any special characters desappears...

    any solution?

    thanks

    I'd look at the Box Appearance parameter in the SubCap effect editor.  Specifically the drop-downs for box width and number of rows.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The problem is a bug. If your are in "edit master caption list" mode, you can enter a subtitle on one line, then type RETURN and enter the second line.

    if you close the "edit master caption list", go to your time line, and play the sequence, you can see there is no second line of subtitle on your monitor, whatever specification you set in the box width and number of row.

    if you reopen "edit master caption list", you can see that your second line has simply desappeared. only the first line stayed... it happens the same with é,è, and any other complex char...

    if you enter &a as a linefeed in the box "caption text", the same phenomenon happens: the second line desappear when you close the effect window...

    this is clearly a problem with characters like RETURN...

    all the best

    Yes.  All of that information describing the problem in detail would've been helpful in your initial post.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    The way Ihave found this with V7 (foreign accents and CR ) is to open an "EDIT MASTER CAPTION LIST" window from Effects Editor "Box appearence" on the SubCap effect.

    You can cut and paste or edit, use different fonts/characters and CR in there.

    Yes I can confirm seeing this, on 8.2 running on 10.8.5: I edit a timeline from a previous project, with french subtitles. I go to Master Caption List, as I always did when it comes to alter subs with funny accents, modify a sub, hit Enter. And anything after the accented letter disappear.

    Thanks for escalating it, and let's hope for a quick fix because it's crucial here...

    Just tested v8.3.0, and it works again for me.  Seems like they fixed it!
