When the menu bar with icons is shown, the subtitles are moved up, so both are shown but not overlapping.

If you change the default subtitles position to a lower one, the menu bar is shown over the subtitles, because they are not moved up enough, just the fixed and default amount.

Move always the subtitles above the menu bar instead of a fixed amount.

I've tested it and it's not fixed. Now the subtitles look in a much a higher position over the OSD with the default vertical setting, but when using a lower vertial setting they still appear over the OSD like in the picture. So now subtitles look bad both times, too high by default and over OSD if it's low.

You have to set the vertical subtitle position just a little above the OSD like before no matter what. Please don't use a fixed amount of vertical displacement. Move the subtitles when needed then back to where they where.

So by default, like it was before this fix, let's say you moved subtitles up 10 pixels. If the user lowers them 100 pixels, you have to detect how much you need to compensate so they look the same when displaying the OSD. Same for -150, -200 etc. It can't be a fixed amount like you tried.

An also take into account the scaling, because the bigger subtitles are, the more vertical space they take. Since OSD is the big new feature in 5.0, you have to be sure buttons can be seen.
