The BD/DVD contents are listed in Title Mode with “Main Title” marked out and selected by default.

f. Subtitles and Audio
Always select the title/chapter before setting its subtitles and audio. In the preview window you can check the Subtitles and Audio track. By default no subtitles are selected. Some chapters/titles have no subtitles; in that case the Subtitles list will show ‘None’ only.
In addition, Pavtube Blu-ray to iPad Converter for Mac also offers an option called “Only show forced subtitles”, which enables you to see subtitles only when actors are speaking a different language. For instance, if you specify English (your mother tongue) as your subtitles, and meanwhile tick off “Only show force subtitles” option, then when actors are speaking English, no subtitles will show up, but when they are talking with each other in French, the English subtitle will appear accompanying with the French.
