X-Title Caption Convert currently is the only available tool for FCP X to convert 'captioned projects' to 'titled projects'. It is a unique tool which is incredibly simple and fast.
FCPX since version 10.4.1 allows to create subtitles directly in the timeline with ease - or you just can import CEA-608 or iTunes iTT files. This is a huge step forward but is dedicated to create Closed Captions.
For those who like the simplicity of this handling but want the options of Open Captions (burned in) this app is the right tool. It installs two dedicated Motion Title templates which can used for the new project.
Then just select font and font size, drag a project from the FCPX browser to the application window - or an fcpxml to the app's icon or application window. That's it. The new XML will be saved to the desktop and could automatically imported into FCPX.

Captions linked to audio in FCPX need to be handled better.
But as always there might be unknown issues. Please report those issues.
As always use the app on your own risk. I'm not responsible for any damages that might happen. Support is based on a 'I've spare time this moment', so sometimes you may have to wait for a few days to get a response. But I'll do my best.
