Scrolling Captions

I may be going crazy, but have others noticed that the caption editing on an embedded Arc video has changed? For most of the time we've been using Arc (about a year now), you could embed an Arc video into a page/assignment/quiz/discussion and edit the captions there. This would give you a small scrolling box for the captions while the rest of the video frame (including the play/pause buttons) would be within easy reach.

Now, this has changed and if you edit the captions on an embedded video, it just scrolls the whole frame down so if you want to access playback controls, you have to scroll all the way to the top.

I know you can click out of the caption box to pause it, but there are still times when having to scroll all the way to the top of the iframe to pause/start a video is cumbersome. Can anyone else confirm that this used to be how it worked and that I'm not going crazy? I was chatting with support and they seemed unsure that the scrolling captions box was ever a thing.

Hello Andrew!

In my institution we have very difficult to edit the captions on ARC, when we need do it, we put the video in youtube to make the caption and then we download the captions and put it on ARC. We use this way because the ARC's tools to edit caption are very simple, and the editing on Youtube is better.

I think that there have been no changes in this ARC feature, since we have been using ARC ( two year) I remember it is the same thing.

I noticed that you can click in the time of the video where you are editing the caption and the scroll bar goes to top of the video, maybe this might help you.
