Select the subtitle track in the 'Tracks, chapters, and tags' box and set the language to English and set 'Forced track flag' to 'yes'. I left all the other settings at the default values. Then click 'Start Muxing'. It'll create an mkv file. That's all I did. You can use mediainfo or mkvinfo to verify that that 'Forced' flag is set for the subtitles track. I'm using mkvmerge GUI version 5.1.0.

It will take some reorganization to apply that to embedded text subtitle tracks as well, but I'll look into it.

Great, thanks for letting me know. Glad to be of some small help.
