Open Subtitles

Here you can select the two fonts that will be used for the subtitle rendering and their properties. Along with font’s boldness and size you can set additional properties, like spacing and horizontal scaling.

Spacing (defined in pixels, ranging from –16.0 to +16.0) specifies the additional space left between the characters – when its value is negative characters are drawn closer to each other. In case of a positive value characters are drawn further apart from one another.

Horizontal Scale (defined in percent, ranging from +50 to +150) specifies horizontal characters deformation – values lower than 100 will shrink and higher than 100 will expand the character's width.

Right to Left - click this checkbox if you are working in Arabic, Hebrew or Persian. You can configure one of the fonts to be right-to-left and thus having subtitles with both left-to-right and right-to-left lines.

Asian Text Font option enables the program to display Asian and non Asian text with different font when they are inserted on the same line. The text displayed with the Asian dedicated font have the same size as the regular font.

Note: Please mind that the Asian Text Font option will be correctly preserved when the subtitles are saved in the native .EZT format or exported as Images/DVB Subtitles. All other file formats does not support such feature.
