What you can do is in settings, choose mpv as videoplayer (you have to click download button). And then also set "mpv handles preview text.
MPV will show all subtitles above the interface.

cheers
Thanks, tried mpv before and subs preview are not so elegant as with DirectShow. Guess I can try to get used to it once more...

I know what you mean. Using SE for creating/editing srt's, I don't mind much how it looks in my preview because the end goal is to play it with mediaplayers.
And as for srt, which is only text and timing-info, I always end up creating SUP files to mux with video. That way I control how & where the subtitles will look.

Maybe there is some settings withtin the DirectShow configuration you can change for how subtitles are displayed?

Yeah, an improved DirectShow subtitle preview would be great, or a better looking mpv preview that is smoother for my eyes.
When editing and syncing it gets tiresome after a while for my eyes, so the smoother the preview font style is the better.
So I'll stick to DirectShow for now.
I do much the same as you, starting with either an imported sup/sub/ or from scratch an srt.
When needed I create a BD sup where I can choose font, style, size, placement, color etc.
Without the excellent Subtitle Edit I would be lost!
