How can I delay the start of captioning? I have a few seconds of introduction music to start my project. However, when syncing the captions, the playhead jumps to the beginning of the timeline so the captioning begins during the music. Thanks.

use the mouse to drag the left end of the caption, to the right, to where you want it to start

or split the caption and remove the text there

Hmm, I tried that but it reduces the length of the caption, so I'd need to adjust every caption that follows.  I must me missing something simple.

if you add lead-in music to timeline, then add in the captions ...

if you add your lead-in music after the captions are already in place, then just select all the captions and move them to the right, down the timeline, to realign them with the original sync positions

Excellent - thanks.  Sometimes I know enough to be dangerous.  :-)
