Hello Patrick

Thank you for the feedback.

Point 1: Some documentation is here:

Point 2: Shift+left-mouse you can select as many subtitle as you like.
CTRL+A for selecting all subtitles is not possible at the moment.

Point 3: Probably with 20.12.1 you can view/un-view and lock the
subtitle track. When un-viewed the subtitles are not rendered out. You
can test this function with the daily build (see the download page).
