How to divide lines Jul 4, 2017

Hello, Laura:

In order to break the lines in Aegisub (and in most subtitle editors), you have to use "\N". Do no add spaces before or after it, as they count as characters.

Example:

What we have managed to do is\Nto raise funds for specific projects.

I hope this helps.

one las question Jul 4, 2017

Hi Alejandra,
One last question is possible. How can I see then the word count of the second line? I seem to be able to see it just for the first one.

Much appreciated.

Character count Jul 4, 2017

What you see is not the word count, but the character count instead. That number tells you the number of characters that the longest line of the subtitles has.

Character Count Jul 4, 2017

Yes sorry, I meant character. So there is no way of seeing what the character count is for the other line?
