I'm not sure this is any clearer, actually. While the old phrasing would
indeed have given me an inaccurate idea of what was meant, the current
phrasing gives me no usable information at all; it says that pressing
the key will align the subtitle top edge, but it does not say *what* it
will align that edge to.

I'm not entirely satiefied with it, but perhaps "Align subtitles to the
top edge of their position" or the like might be clear (if not
completely smooth English)?

side of it.

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
