.srt editing

Is there a way to automatically 'balance' text in an entire srt file with subtitles over 2 lines, besides doing it manually per line? Limiting/extending the amount of characters per line. For example instead of:

I set out all the extra chairs, and I made your granny
a plate.


or

I set
out all the extra chairs, and I made your
granny a plate.


Is there some way to automatically change it to this:

I set out all the extra chairs, and I made your granny a plate.

or this:

I set out all the extra chairs,
and I made your granny a plate.


So it's on the same line or at least mutliple lines are aligned more or less evenly to the middle? Purely so it's a little more aesthetically pleasing.


I guess the only confusion automation could have would be if another person spoke, needing a new line.
I have been using Subtitle Workshop and this has a correct subtitles over 2 lines option, but still leaves some odd lines, looking 'unbalanced'!

You could try Subtitle Edit...

I just tried it, it seems to work...go to:- "Tools - Break/split long lines"
