  1. I made some .ass subtitles a while back, but I put in so much positioning and different formatting/fonts all over the place.

    I want to simplify it and make it with only one font and a couple positions.

    Is there a way to easily remove all formatting, and positioning in the .ass subtitle file with Aegisub? I want it to have nothing positioned or stylized anymore, so I can go back and only change a couple pieces of text positioning only.

    I really would like a faster method than going through every line one by one, and manually making changes and removals.

    I considered that, but it messes up a lot of the text that are at the same time spots but different on screen positions. It just throws them all together, and scrambles it up usually. Not only is it added time to export as srt, and then make them into .ass all over again, but then there's the go look for everything it scrambled together job added as well.

    Aegisub doesn't have a simple remove all formatting/positioning option anywhere that I don't know about?

    I think this may work - go to menu item Automation, select all lines and then go to bottom item on menu 'Strip tags' Save as .ass

    Thanks, that looks like it worked like a charm.

    FINALLY!! Someone was able to give me pretty much what I wanted. I have been asking around in other places for a while with no luck or ideas from others. What you suggested did everything but get rid of all the fonts, which is an easy manual fix if there's no automated change everything to one font.
