    I don't know if this is dupe, but I've made a search in the forum before posting.
    I've been converting sub/idx packs to subrip format for a very long time. But sometimes I see that sth is wrong with timing structure. For instance:

    Code:
    1
    01:23:16,076 --> 01:23:20,638
    <i>I gotta own it, breathe it
    Live it like I mean it</i>
    
    2
    01:23:00,021 --> 01:23:00,069
    <i>There's a hero in me
    It's all I wanna be</i>
    
    3
    01:22:54,829 --> 01:22:55,743
    <i>Out of my way
    This is a job for me</i>
    
    4
    01:22:36,078 --> 01:22:39,741
    And our next book report is
    from Jeffrey Zimmer.
    
    5
    01:22:25,087 --> 01:22:29,490
    Well, my report is on Neal Morris'
    new Tripp Zoome book,
    
    6
    01:22:06,039 --> 01:22:09,304
    at this paper factory where they make
    the paper that goes in the books.
    
    .
    .
    .
    .
    
    480
    00:01:17,967 --> 00:01:24,904
    No police intervention.
    
    481
    00:01:15,351 --> 00:01:24,939
    I promise.
    
    482
    00:00:57,079 --> 00:00:59,980
    Bombs ready? Aim!
    
    483
    00:00:44,054 --> 00:00:45,851
    This is just perfect.
    
    484
    00:00:29,099 --> 00:00:31,533
    Come on! This will never come out!
    
    485
    00:00:15,095 --> 00:00:18,292
    Merv Kilbo and his trusty ragtop
    are on the case.
    But it should be like this actually:
    Code:
    1
    00:00:15,095 --> 00:00:18,292
    <i>I gotta own it, breathe it
    Live it like I mean it</i>
    
    2
    00:00:29,099 --> 00:00:31,533
    <i>There's a hero in me
    It's all I wanna be</i>
    
    3
    00:00:44,054 --> 00:00:45,851
    <i>Out of my way
    This is a job for me</i>

    SW's "Timing Adjust" and "Fix Overlapped Lines" features didn't work. Is it possible to fix this making a script for SW or sth else?
    I know it has nothing to do with SW. On the contrary it is completely related to idx file I got but I need to find out how I can fix this reversed timing problem.
    Here is a sample complete sub, idx, and srt files of the example above:

    Thank you in advance.

    If you look at the .idx file in Notepad, the times are all negative.

    Open the .idx in SubResync.
    On the first sub:
    Left Click
    Then Right Click (circle is green)
    Now Left Click and hold the button for a second then release.
    You can now edit the time.
    Insert the time of the last sub (00:00:11.714)
    The 'Preview' column changes to show all the subs are retimed (the last line is now 01:23:39.316)
    Save the the sub/idx with a new name.
