    Hi everyone. I am trying to just import some subtitles which in EVERY other application shows perfectly as only two lines, but here it does this odd thing where you get this happen where one word is below the first line and another below the third line, please see the image below. On any other software or viewer, it’s just two lines. It’s quite time consuming to go hours fixing this. Why is Resolve behaving like this?

    One possibility is that Resolve doesn’t have the font used to create the original subtitle. In substituting the font, sometimes it causes a line wrap which is what seems to be happening here. Before importing a project or timeline from another system, I always ask the editor to supply me with the font used or at least tell me what it is so I can check before importing

    It simply looks like either the region isn’t wide enough or font size is to big.

    Captions /subtitles source files in Resolve normally do not include any font instructions.
