  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    Hi,

    This feature is now released as part of Bridge v10.0.

    Please upgrade Bridge to v10.0 to see the change.

    At the bottom of the Content pane, you should uncheck “Show Tiles”. After Tiles are removed, go to Edit→Preferences→Interface→Image Backdrop to change the slider to pure white.

    Thanks,
    Teja
    Senior Product Manager,
    Adobe Bridge

  3. 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.

  4. Content window changes are not for the better

    1) The dark boxes around the thumbnails are distracting and do not add anything useful.

    2)The stars are WAY too large. Waste of space and a distraction.

    3)Thumbnail sizes are now limited to some preset sizes when before you could smoothly drag the slider to perfectly fit your current needs.

    4) The space between thumbnails is too large vertically.

  5. Restore separate control for image background color

    My longstanding preference is for a light interface color and a dark image background. Please bring back the ability to control the two colors separately.

  6. Path completion

    Would be great to have path completion in the address bar in Bridge - either the tab completion in MacOS (eg. the 'Go' bar and terminal bash), or the mixed cursor-tab equivalent in Windows (explorer's address bar and cmd).

    It's always slightly disconcerting when you're used to relying on it not to have it there.

  8. Add search text entry to main menu

    It would be nice to search the bridge library without having to use Control - F. Maybe there should be an option to search locally OR search adobe stock.

  9. 'Copy Path' directly from Bridge

    In Windows 10 file explorer, you have the chance of copy the full path of a file by clicking "Ctrl + Right-Mouse-Btn" and choosing "Copy full path".

    it would be awesome to have something like that on Bridge, because it broads the range of software you can work better with. I sometimes work with 3d software, webdesign, and/or smaller utilities for video and image, and most of them don't support Bridge's "drag-and-drop", or it simply doesn't fit the workflow (example: webdesign - you do it by code...)

    A "Copy full path" function would help greatly on that, and shouldn't be…

  10. Bring Split View to Mac OS

    In Adobe Bridge 2019 and PS CC for Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6 I am unable to do split view as in previous OS versions. Is this something that Adobe got rid of on the latest version or is something related to the current Mac OS that I am running? It would be great to have that feature back!

    Split view is great when working with Bridge in different folders... specially when moving around files... same applies to PS CC... it's great to have two windows open in full size.. it makes a difference!

    Please bring back Split View for Mac…

  11. Support full screen on Mac

    What does Adobe have against Mac? Full screen on MacOS has only been around for a decade, why do none of Adobe's premiere applications support it? Literally every other cross platform app I have on my computer supports full screen.

    What's the problem?

  13. WMF and DSF files

    Bridge needs the ability to read .wmf and .dsf files. Many design engineers still use these formats, so they're still viable. But as of now, we have to use a third-party program top see the files. We'd rather just have Bridge do that so we can keep the number of programs to a minimum on our computers.

  14. Context Menu: Rearrange "Delete" and "Duplicate" commands to prevent accidential deletion

    When using the Content Panel, the user may right-click a file/folder to access commands. The context menu includes the items "Duplicate" and "Delete". The two commands are immediately adjacent which presents a risk that the user will accidental select delete when intending to duplicate.

    Please reorder the context menu items in order to separate the "Delete" command from other items, especially items beginning with the same letter. For example, place the "Delete" command at the absolute bottom of the context menu with a horizontal rule above it.

  15. Bridge 2019: Benutzeroberfläche - Bildhintergrund

    Bitte bringen Sie den Schieberegler aus Bridge 2018 mit der Möglichkeit, den Bildschirmhintergrund komplett auf weiß zu ändern zurück, damit man wieder auf weiß retuschierte Bilder ordentlich in der Bridge betrachten und kontrollieren kann. Die grauen Vorschauhintergründe machen dies aktuell unmöglich, so dass die Bridge 2019 für diese Zwecke nicht mehr nutzbar ist.

  16. Use Operating system cursors

    Use Operating system cursors!! FCOL, is this so hard? Bridge for CS6 was far better.

    The miserable, tiny, black cursor must have been a brain fart on the part of a non-user of this product!

    I use Windows Extra Large, white cursors so that I can actually SEE what I'm doing, not spend my time looking for a black cursor on a dark background! And I have about 20/15 vision (with glasses), so God help anyone with less than absolutely perfect vision.

    While you are at it, offer a wider range of colour densities in PREFERENCES/INTERFACE.

    Also make the ICONS…

  17. Stop re-adding columns closed by the user in list view

    Just... stop.

    I really have no idea what else to say. When I go through the trouble of right-clicking on a column (Rating, for example), I DON'T WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN. Why does Bridge keep re-adding these columns every time I change views or open the app?

  18. Need separate Work-in-Progress Indicator

    I feel that a separate Work-in-Progress Indicator (distinct from the Spinning Pizza) is needed for those times when Bridge is actually working on something (such as writing Keywords) instead of having frozen completely.

    At the moment, there is no indication that Bridge is doing anything at all while the Pizza keeps spinning and the Dock merely indicates that there is an option to Force Quit.

    So we need a different Bridge-governed indicator and the Pizza should then only appear if Bridge has actually frozen.

  19. Accent Colours

    The Accent Colour is in all versions of Bridge up 2018
    This really helps to teach students, as they can see the at a glance which interface we are using and more importantly which folder I am accessing.
    Please may we have it back.

  20. Easier Uninstall

    Uninstall does not work as it should. It should be as easy to uninstall as to install.

    Opens Creative Cloud which does not know!!! that Bridge is installed. Now trying to install Bridge through Creative Cloud, so I can uninstall it.

    Does not give a good impression of Adobe as a company. Not the first time I have had this experience.
