  1. Regularly I am burning in subtitles. This is going fine, but I always need to manually set flags to Yes, each time.

    Now, when I start up MKVToolNix Gui, the flags are set to YES (Greyed out) (1)
    Upon adding a video file, together with the .srt, most flags are set to NO (2)
    I change them to YES and start multiplexing (3)

    Any idea as to how to set them to YES by default when adding a video/srt file?

    Or, maybe this isn't a good idea?

    Thanks !

    It's very uncommon to set all flags to yes. May I ask why you'd want to do so?

  3. As said, I want to have the subtitles burned in.
    Normally I would just set "Force Display">Yes only and that works fine. Subtitles show up.

    However, now I have a few video files that do not display the subtitles even with Force Display=Yes.
    Just gave it a try and discovered that the subtitles are indeed displayed when setting all flags to "yes'.
    (I don't know why this is and I am not an expert, the only thing I want is to have them burned in AND displayed)

    A burned in subtitle is always shown, because it's a part of the video image.

    With pc software players (like VLC player) yes, with most TV players no.

    Yes flag for default and/or forced? How is the player supposed to know which subtitle to display if there are multiple subtitles?

    Displayed and/or burned in?

  5. Matter solved.
    Don't know how or what happened earlier, but I just started all over again.
    Now the subtitles are burned in and visible/displayed with Force Display=Yes only.
    Am puzzled, but things are okay now. Surely I have done something wrong...

    Really very sorry for the inconvenience folks, sorry!

    Subtitles aren't burned in if you have force display turned on.

    What software are you using to 'burn in the subtitles'.

    As you would know MKVToolnix doesn't have the ability to burn-in subtitles as part of the image.
    SONY 75" Full array 200Hz LED TV, Yamaha A1070 amp, Zidoo UHD3000, BeyonWiz PVR V2 (Enigma2 clone), Chromecast, Windows 7 Ultimate, QNAP NAS TS851
