  • Fix crash when pasting emoji into the edit box
  • Use the OS spellchecker service rather than Hunspell.

  • Support loading keyframes and timecodes files via drag-and-drop (#1749)

Subtitle editing

  • The edit box buttons (bold, italic, colors, etc.) try to do the right thing when multiple lines are selected, rather than just setting all of the lines to the active line’s text
  • The subtitles grid has gained as Characters Per Second column, with customizable warning and error thresholds (#609)
  • Undo now restores the selected lines and cursor position that were active when the change being undone occured
  • Double-clicking on a word which is right next to a \N no longer selects the \N along with the word
