    .idx + .sub ? If so, they are images. You have to rebuild them using the appropriate tool such as SubtitleEdit, Subtitle Creator...

    VOB subtitles are better in the long run, SRT is dull text lol
    Image based subs will always be better.

    #1 PGS
    #2 VOB

    In other words, leave them untouched.

  7. vob subs suck. They scale poorly, you can't control the font, colors, transparency, drop shadows, etc.

    Short answer not easily. You can extract them and resize with bdsub2sup (does more than bd subs). Useful for upscaling subs with upscaling video. for fine adjustments you have to ocr them then remake them as said before
    Option 3 would be check your player for size adjusting.
    if all else fails read the damn manual

    I agree. I always convert the ones that came on the DVD to subs to my own liking.

    To answer the question, though, the IDX file of VobSubs can be edited so that they appear larger or smaller when viewed with the video. But not by using MKVToolnix, but by editing the IDX file of the VobSubs. Open the IDX in Notepad. Originally (for NTSC subs) they say this near the top:

    # Original frame size
    size: 720x480

    # Origin, relative to the upper-left corner, can be overloaded by aligment
    org: 0, 0


    To make them smaller you can change that part so it reads:

    # Original frame size
    size: 1080x720

    # Origin, relative to the upper-left corner, can be overloaded by aligment
    org: 200, 220


    The pictures below show the result, with the original size on the left and the reduced size on the right. Maybe not all players will recognize the changes but, as I said, I don't use the original VobSubs anyway.
