I thought of a way of automating a process in Shotcut whereby you can create a whole series of subtitle clips (or any text) just by pressing a couple of keys (“hotkeys”) to start the process.
The method uses Shotcut in conjunction with AutoHotKey, a free keyboard macro program.
It’ a little complex to explain, (but well worth it when you get it going), so I just made this tutorial video and put it on Youtube:
It works by running a short AutoHotKey script. Try it out yourself - the script is here. It’s a .txt file, so you’ll need to change the extension to .ahk once downloaded:

I’ve also uploaded the AHK file to GoogleDrive:
Please let me know what you think! And also if I’ve made any glaring errors in my tutorial video…
