What's new

v6.0 [Aug 17, 2013]
-TOOLBAR added - (show/hide from "View: Toolbar"). Note that the "Undo" and "Redo" buttons offer a dropdown list with the last Undo/Redo actions, so you can Undo/Redo multiple actions at once.
- STATUSBAR added - (show/hide from "View: Statusbar"). Displays the current subtitles format and the number of the currently selected subtitle(s). Left mouse button click on the number centers the Subtitles List on the first (or only) selected subtitle. Right mouse button click on the number centers the Subtitles List on the last (or only) selected subtitle.
- FULL TAGS SUPPORT MODE (Multiple Tags Mode) added - currently only for the SubRip, MicroDVD, and Sub Station Alpha formats. To enable it, select "Multiple tags mode" in "Settings: Settings: General". The subtitles in the Video Preview Panel are also properly formatted when using the Multiple Tags Mode. Tags that can be used while editing are:
- TEXT STYLE BARS added - (show/hide them from "View: Text style bars"). They consist of style tags buttons. They appear above the "Text" and "Translation" fields. They have similar behaviour to that of the Microsoft Word buttons.
- "PAUSE" editbox added - to display and set the pause between the current and the previous subtitle.
- "PAUSE" column added in the Subtitles List.
- "DURATION" column added in the Subtitles List.
- When you right-click the column titles ("Num", "Show", "Hide", "Text", "Translation", "Duration", or "Pause") of the Subtitles List, a new Subtitles List Header Context Menu pops up that allows you to show/hide the different columns.
- The columns positions are now automatically saved.
- When the "Text" and "Translation" columns positions are swapped, the "Text" and "Translation" fields are automatically swapped as well.
- When the "Show" column header in the Subtitles List is clicked, the "Sort" function ("Edit: Subtitles: Sort") is executed (subtitles are sorted by their Show Time).
- When the "Text" or "Translation" column header in the Subtitles List is clicked, the widths of the "Text" and "Translation" columns become equal.
- The values in the "Show", "Hide", "Duration", and "Pause" boxes can now be edited with the mouse scroll wheel, when you're inside those boxes. If you hold the CTRL key while scrolling, the decrease/increase value will be 10 times larger. If you hold the ALT key while scrolling, the decrease/increase value will be 2 times smaller. The increase/decrease step can be set in "Settings: Settings: General: Advanced". If you hold the SHIFT key while scrolling, the duration is not changed at all, but rather the subtitle is shifted in time (similar to using "Edit: Timings: Shift N milliseconds" and "Edit: Timings: Shift -N milliseconds").
- When the mouse cursor is over one of the time boxes ("Show", "Hide", "Duration", or "Pause"), the corresponding time value can now be set by using the mouse scroll wheel, without entering (clicking in) the box. Subtitle Workshop indicates this by underlining the time value in the corresponding box. Using the CTRL and ALT, keys to modify the step, or the SHIFT key to shift the subtitle is possible.
- Pause, Show, Hide, and Duration values can now be changed in the Subtitles List with the mouse scroll wheel, when the corresponding cell is clicked and the left mouse button is held down while scrolling with the mouse scroll wheel. Using the CTRL and ALT, keys to modify the step is possible.
- Right-click selection can be enabled in the Subtitles List (from "Settings: Settings: Look: List: Right click selection").
- "Insert subtitle", "Insert before", "Remove selected", and "Remove all tags" added to the Context Menu of the Subtitles List.
- When a subtitle with Bad Values is selected, it's duration is now displayed as 00:00:00,000 instead of 23:XX;XX,XXX.
- "OCR Scripts" checkbox added in the Left Panel for fast enabling/disabling of the OCR Script errors checking and fixing.
- "Notes" field added to the Left Panel of Subtitle Workshop (show/hide it from "View: Show notes in left panel"). The notes are global for the entire program and not dependant on the current subtitle file(s). Set the charset of the "Notes" field in "Settings: Settings: Charsets: Notes charset".
- Accurate charset conversion when using Paste operations.
- Select All, Cut, Copy, and Paste (and their shortcuts) now available for all textboxes, dropboxes, and other controls throughout Subtitle Workshop (e.g.: pressing CTRL A ("Edit: Select all") in the "Text" or "Translation" fields selects the entire text in the filed now, not all subtitles in the Subtitles List).
- The width of the Time Controls Area and Text Controls Area can now be resized via a new horizontal splitter located between them.
- Four time control buttons added in the Time Controls Area (show/hide from "View: Show time control buttons"). Each button has two functions - one when it's clicked with the left mouse button, and another when it's clicked with the right mouse button.
