Rating by Jesper on Aug 7, 2022 Version: 3.6.6 OS: Windows 11 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Subtitle Edit is my main subtitle editor, besides it I don't usually use another one (except for the aegis sub, which focuses on subtitles in ASS and SSA), it is excellent in relation to the multiple formats it works, and when the large amount of tools such as delay, formatting of letters and colors, translations (including using the google translator V1 api), cut and lines and everything else, but the strongest point is the OCR capture for subtitles in vobsub and SUP, because the analysis is very efficient, and there is the possibility of improvements in the capture, to help the capture engine), even better than subrip (which was the program I used previously for this same function). For editing subtitles, together with video I prefer to use Subtitle Workshop, because in this regard it is simpler, but for other tasks, Subtitle Edit for me is essential. I thank the developers for the project and for its constant updates.

Does not work properly. SubtitleEdit.exe is a suspect/threat file for the virusscanner McAfee. The version 3.6.1 does not pose a problem. Overall a good programm, but not version 3.6.2

Review by Blackie on Sep 14, 2021 Version: 3.6.2 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 8/10

Please keep Source view tab
And fix merge line with same text:
Sample, line 38 & 1008 same text, They will still merge together when I use merge line with same text
