  • By default, this option is turned off. To turn it on, please go to Settings>Playback.
  • Please note the generating waveform may take a long time depending on media length but happens once unless media file edited.
  • About styles shortcut:
  • When editing subtitle's text, you can select and set style directly using keyboard shortcut or using the buttons on the styles toolbar.
  • First, use Edit Styles to setup the styles needed for your project.
  • After that, when editing a text, simply press Alt+1 to set the first style then start typing the text.
  • Or, select the text on the subtitle text editor (in properties, media player or subtitle properties dialog) then press the shortcut Alt+1.
  • Let's say we have 10 styles, then we can access them using Alt+* while * is the style slot number. For example, to set the first style, we press Alt+1.
  • To set the second style, we press Alt+2, Alt+3 for the 3rd style...etc. Note that the styles slots are limited to 9 slots (thus, we can use Alt+9 as maximum slot).
  • Also, note that at the styles bar, only 7 buttons are available, to set styles from 1 to 7.
  • The limitation is due to control space ... anyway, all styles from 1 to 9 can be accessed through shortcut Alt+* while * is style slot number, can be 1 to 9.
