  1. Revert the coloured labelling dot back to a visible line!

    On previous versions of Bridge, the label was a highly visible coloured line under the image. On Bridge 2019, they have changed the label to an inconspicuous and highly missable small coloured dot.

    Please revert back to the old line, or give us the option on how the label should look.

  2. Please Undo Some "Improvements" to Bridge 2019

    1) Where's my true black background? For as long as I've worked with Adobe products I've kept my workspace backgrounds as close to black as possible. Bridge 2018 accommodated me. Bridge 2019 does not: nearest I can get to black is an insipid and annoyingly bright neutral gray. Please restore my option to work against true black.

    2) Please make star ratings optional. I do not use star ratings and when stars were much smaller I could ignore them. Now they take up a good chunk of real estate beneath my image, making information I do choose to show hard…

    Hi,

    This feature is available to try as a Beta (Prerelease) in Bridge v10.0 Drop 2.

    Please go to https://adobeprerelease.com and Select Adobe Bridge and sign up for our prerelease program to have an early look at this feature and provide feedback.

    Summary of changes:
    At the bottom of the Content Panel, we have provide 2 checkboxes:
    1. Tiles (to show/hide tiles)
    2. Thumbnails only (to show/hide ratings and file names)

    If the tiles are removed, you can change the color of the interface around the thumbnails from pure white to pure black. Edit Menu → Preferences → Interface → Image Backdrop

    Click on a Color Theme to reset to defaults.

    Regards,
    Teja

  3. Reduce space wasting in Bridge 2019 UI

    Since Bridge 2019, the whole UI is "larger" and needs more space. There is more space between the items in the folder list, the keyword list, and the favorites items. Thus, only half of the list fits to the same space as before.
    Also the space between thumbnails in the grid view was enlarged.

    Please enable an option as für the "Text Size" that let the user bring up more content in a compacter manner.

    Dear Bridge users,

    As one of the top voted features, this is actively under development. We plan to provide option to hide the tiles so that you can see larger thumbnails and zoom out if you need to see more assets in Content View. While 9.1 (released) has some improvements, the upcoming Bridge release this year end will have significant improvements in this area. As far as the folder view and Keywords is concerned, we hope to address that next year.

    Meanwhile, some of you may benefit from the existing “View Menu→Show Thumbnails Only” to see more assets in Content View.

    Thank you for your vote.

  4. Thumbnail Boxes

    The darker boxes around each and every thumbnail image, omg, get rid of those or at least make it optional. Its just awful. I am told on the forum "The dark grey boxes around assets in content panel is designed for better view of assets." Thats a hell of a thing to assume, it makes me want to scratch my eyes out. Please PleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePlease

  5. More colour labels

    Pleas add more colour option or the ability to make custom colours for labels in Bridge. There are currently only 5, which when working at a large scale or with big teams is not enough!

  6. Old Label visuals much better than new 'dot' feature

    Wondered if there is a way to make the labels in Bridge CC 2019 more pronounced like in the previous version vs the tiny dots they are now? Preferences does not seem to offer this option. I much prefer the old labels that were easier to better illustrate my workflow (approved, review, work on, etc.) at a glance. These tiny dots require more attention to determine what I am looking at.

  7. Allow users to have 8 labels which can be given unique names by users. This is already the case with competitors such as Photo Mechanic

    Allow users to have 8 labels which can be given unique names by users. This is already the case with competitors such as Photo Mechanic and other software vendors. I am reluctant to move away from Photo Mechanic to Adobe Bridge because I find it so useful. This is already a popular idea on the forum as can be seen from many posts

  8. ADOBE BRIDGE : SHOW FULL FILENAME IN PREVIEW WINDOW UNDER GRAPHIC

    Finder is AWEFUL compared to ADOBE BRIDGE for reviewing images.
    In Adobe Bridge, there's PLENTY of space under the graphic in PREVIEW window to show the full file image. NEED THIS... BADLY.

  9. Image Backdrop-need pure white tone

    Image backdrop needs to be a user defined tone as previous versions allowed. Pure white is definitely needed to double check images that are required to have a 255 255 255 background. Had to revert to 2018 version.

  10. Disable Thumbnail and Preview Generation, and Caching

    Thumbnails and previews are agonizingly slow to generate. Regardless of what settings I change, they take way too long to load, and often times don't load at all. Cache size, cache file size limit, preview quality, etc, none of them are effective, especially for videos since some cache settings don't apply to them. I would like the ability to apply keywords to files quickly. In my case, and I'm sure often enough for others, the thumbnails and previews are excess information. Generating them takes too long to make the workflow possible at all. Please consider. Thank you.

    Dear Bridge Users,

    Have you tried setting the following Preferences?
    Edit Menu→Preferences→Thumbnails→Do Not Process files larger than 1000 MB. Change this to 1 MB.

    Also, on the right hand side of the folder navigation bar on top, drop down next to the triangle (Option for thumbnail quality and previews) and select “Prefer Embedded (faster)”. Screenshot attached.

    Let us know if this helps by commenting on User Voice.

  11. Bridge 9.1 breaks workflow of deleting pictures

    the latest official release of Bridge (v.9.1) breaks my workflow of deleting pictures. When in normal viewing mode, I am editing pictures by scrolling or selecting photos in the content window to review them in the preview window. When deleting a marked/active picture with backspace, the next picture in the content window is automatically selected or marked (with a blue rectangle) and you can go on editing your pictures. That is the behavior in former versions of Adobe Bridge CC 2019 (e.g. v.9.0.3).

    In Bridge CC 2019 version 9.1 the mark of the active photo (the blue rectangle) is jumping…

  12. histogram

    Could we see HISTOGRAM in Adobe Bridge? It's very important for photographers. (I know Adobe is more suited for Designers and they don't need it...)

  13. Display saved version in file attributes

    Hello, is it possible to additionally show in the file properties in which version a file was saved? For example EPS-8, EPS-10, AI CC or PS CC. This would be especially good for EPS. Many thanks, Gabi

  15. Smooth scrolling PLEASE!

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make the scrolling smooth! This will make the experience infinitely better. Currently it's just awful on the eye to track where you're at while scrolling.

  16. I don't like the new Content window.

    There's too much wasted space between the thumbnails. Also, the dark boxes around the thumbnails are really unnecessary and distracting. I prefer the view of CC 2018. Please make this new look optional, and/or allow users to turn these boxes off in preferences.

  17. Custom Folder Icons

    One of the only things I like about Macs is the relative ease of customizing the icons for folders. But the problem is that if there are Macs and PCs on the same network, the same icons aren't visible on both.
    I would love if Bridge would allow you to
    a) Change those icons from within Bridge itself. (Shouldn't need to go to Finder, then File Info, etc.).
    b) Allow Bridge on a PC to see those same Folder Icons. The hidden "Icon?" file is in each folder. Use it. Show it. Make Bridge be more than a bridge for…

  18. Crashes while renaming files

    Bridge9.1 Renaming files takes very long, then it crashes while giving files the new name. Giving files a new name for a second time is absolute impossible, i have to change in bridge 2018, then all this things work great without any problem.

  19. Old interface in Bridge 8 was much better than new!

    I think not need to change things that was good.
    New interface is too "designed": previously it was more compact, without extra featuгes as big grey stars, wide grey frames around images and many other.
    New features must adjusted in Preferences in more detailed style.

  20. auto preview latest file

    Many versions ago, Bridge had a functional auto preview latest file script. For those shooting tethered, a working script that shows the lastest image shot in the preview window would be of great benefit.
