    SubSimple will only accept SRT files encoded in UTF-8. If it can’t recognise the file, it won’t convert.

    To make sure your SRT file is in UTF-8:
    – open your SRT file in TextEdit on your Mac
    – in file, choose “Duplicate”
    – then choose Save
    – At the bottom, where it says Plain Text Encoding, choose: Unicode (UTF-8)
    – Save new SRT file

    For selecting external drives, it’s possible, but you have to access them in a different way. SubSimple runs a Python script in a Linux interface. This might alter some of the Mac-interface you’re used to.

    You can access external drives by choosing the / and selecting “Volumes”.

    I just bought the offline app and tried to convert an .srt file after duplicating it and saving it as a Unicode (UTF-8) file to make sure it’s in the right format but it still doesn’t do anything when hitting “convert”.
    I’m on OSX 10.12.4.
    Any takes on what to do?
