[Mac App Store] Missing Subtitles Feature

Post by ILoveFileBot » 11 Sep 2019, 14:08

While looking at the image for the Mac Getting Started I noticed that it includes a handy "Subtitles" icon on the left that my version, 4.8.5 (6224) appears to be missing. Is there something I'm missing in getting this to show up?

I'm sorry...having trouble figuring out how to post a screenshot. If you click on the link below it should come up.

The MAS app does not support the FileBot Subtitles feature due to Apple restrictions.
Please read this thread for details:

Are you sure because I was able to see it with the installation of brew cask. Do you mean it won't work now? Also, the pic where I see it online is again in the Mac Getting Started.

If you install FileBot via the Mac App Store from Apple, then the Subtitles feature is not included.

If you install FileBot via any other non-Apple channel, such as brew cask, or by downloading and clicking on the PKG installer, then the Subtitles feature will be included.
