    can we get the ability to only extract and save the subtitles marked as forced with a subtitle track?

    Actually it is. See attached photo. Works with MKV and MP4. I don't do whole disc copy, so I'm not sure about that.

    right but how do you know what english track has the forced subs in it? on a movie with 3 or 4 english tracks, it should be expanded to select forced only on all tracks seperately, like MakeMKV does

    You can't know which English track has the forced subs in it - MakeMKV doesn't know either. So it displays a gazillion checkboxes just in case.
    And CloneBD only knows which tracks had forced subs after the whole movie was parsed through. In other words: after conversion.

    If you like MakeMKVs approach better, go with that - personally, I feel that CloneBD's UI handles this WAAAAY more elegantly.

    You can easily eliminate the commentary subs by using the preview and selecting each English (or whatever language) sub and watching for a short time. Then I just select the one or two remaining English sub tracks and let CloneBD work its magic.
