Changing subtitle-offset virtually impossible due to black overlay/band at the bottom of the screen.

When using Plex for Kodi it is vertually impossible to change the subtitle offset because a big black band apears at the bottom of the screen whenever selecting that option in Audio-settings, so the subtitles are not visible anymore.

I am on Kodi 17.3 and using the default Estuary skin. When using Confluence Skin I experience the same phenomenon.
When performing the same action in Kodi (without using Plex for Kodi)there is no black band appearing and the subtitles stay visible.

Anyone has a solution for this?

Thanks in advance.

    Well I found a solution, not sure if this is new but when selecting the subtitle option completely on the right (instead of selecting it though video settings), you can set the delay without a black overlay :)
