Customize Captions Dialog Box

The Customize Captions dialog box allows you to configure how the caption fields in a project you're inserting are matched with the caption fields in your current project. You can associate caption fields from the project being inserted with caption fields in the current project, and decide whether the unmatched caption fields are added to your project or discarded.

Parameter Description
Captions list

The list of captions being merged. The left column is for the caption fields in the current project, and the right column is for the caption fields in the project being inserted.

Captions that are aligned horizontally will be matched, and the value of these captions in the inserted project will be added to that caption field in the current project. By default, captions that have the same name will already be aligned together. Should you need to customize the way the caption fields in both projects are matched, keep in mind the following behaviors:

  • If a caption field of one of the project being merged is aligned with one of the caption fields in the current project, the values for that merged project's field will be added to the current project's field it is aligned with, for all the scenes that are imported from that merged project, even if these fields don't have the same name.
  • For example, if the current project has a caption field named Action and the project being merged has a caption field named Action Notes, and they are both aligned horizontally, once the projects are merged, the value of the Action Notes caption field for the scenes being imported will be stored in the Action field.

  • If a caption field for the project getting merged is below all the fields in the current project, it will be added as a new field to the current project.
  • If a caption field for the project getting merged is below all the fields in the current project and is crossed out, it will be ignored.
  • If a caption field for the project getting merged is aligned with one of the fields of the current project and is crossed out, this field will be empty for all the scenes that are imported from that project.
  • If a caption field is added to the project but has the same name as an existing caption field, it will have a suffix number.

Add Caption

If you have removed a caption from one of the project getting inserted, you can select the removed caption and click on this button to add it back.

Remove Caption

Ignores the currently selected caption field for the inserted project. The values for that caption field will not be imported in the current project.

Move Up

Moves the selected caption field up in the list of captions, changing which caption field in the original project it is matched with.

Move Down

Moves the selected caption down in the list of captions, changing which caption field in the original project it is matched with.
