What are the keyboard shortcuts to move subtitles in VLC up or down?
At least on VLC 2.1.6, you can set the shortcut under the
Tools->Hotkeys menu (with
Show settings). However, cumbersome enough, shifting the subtitle position doesn't come into effect until you restart VLC, which makes the shortcut rather useless, speeding up the trial-error process thought.
I was looking to set overtitles because the video I was seeing had embedded subtitles and I noticed that you can set the offset to a high value (say 1000) and vlc will place the subtitles as high as possible.
EDIT: As reported by the OP, at least from VLC 2.2.1, the subtitle shift is instantaneous.
