  1. Is there a way to prevent text overlaps? I thought I had caught everything on one long job but in review I see a few
    overlaps. I guess I'll ask it as: How many milliseconds needed for the avoidance of overlaps just from the aspect of
    screen writes (one title appearing after the next) ?

    The end timing of a line can be the same as the start timing of the next line -
    ie. no gap at all.
    However, if you use tools/apply minimum gap between subtitles,
    the minimum gap from settings/general will be applied

  3. Thanks Dave. I'll have to go by the color prompts in SE that show individual overlaps. I'm well acquainted with having to use that feature but then I have a perceived problem of getting my vocal phrase to not be cut off

    I may not be describing it right.

    Settings in SE are worrisome to me and I've tried to avoid them altogether preferring more control of the line.

  4. Apply minimum gap-- yes-- how can I make sure it is turned off and how is it in default?

    Looking at my Settings I have Mn gap between subtitles in ms at "2" which isn't much. I lowered all those settings.

  5. I sure your aware but under Fix common errors... there is a check box (second one down) Fix overlapping display lines that will prevent overlapping.

  6. Thank you. Actually no I wasn't aware of that specifically since there are so many of those fix common errors entries. I would only use 'fix common errors' on a test basis.

  7. I admit I don't understand the workings of features in Subtitle Edit. So if I just want to use this overlap feature, tick that box and untick all the rest, when does the change kick in-- immediately? And is there an undo ?

    I don't see enough prompts to just _know_ all this or when it's happening. Or how to turn it all off. It's my impression that I am redoing a lot of things to make small changes. So I save frequently after a line or two manually without depending on SE generated backup copies.

    Does AegisSub behave differently-- less auto-generated stuff ?
