  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.

    Senior Product Manager,
    Adobe Bridge

  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. Updated Camera Raw

    The new user interface is not as convenient or easy to use as the previous version. The delete icon is hard to see. Before, after making a crop, choosing the hand icon gave a full screen view of the crop. Now, apparently the user must click done, return to Bridge and then re-enter Camera Raw. Sometimes when trying to change to a different tool, the application will not allow the change; for example, switching from the hand tool to the crop tool.

  5. Camera Raw

    Please return to a version similar to the previous one.
    I cannot stand scrolling up and down the right hand side bar.
    I do not like Lightroom for this very reason.
    At least make the panels customisable so I can put then where I want.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  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. '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…

  12. icon color

    Please refrain from changing the color scheme when you update the program icons (as seen in desktop shortcuts, taskbars, etc). If you get used to using a color as a quick visual reference when switching between programs, a change is disconcerting. Also, the new, really dark background icons are harder to pick out overall against the black background of a windows taskbar.

  13. 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…

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Scale UI for 4k monitors to 150%ish

    Hi there! Just upgraded to 4k screens - super exciting! Then launched lightroom and other adobe software - they look great!
    But somehow I feel Bridge was left out and did not get the beautiful 150%ish scaling factor... I hope it can be added soon because I think it would add a lot of value to many many everyday adobe users!

    Here are some screenshots "michaelt6058876" posted on the community page: https://community.adobe.com/t5/bridge/scaling-not-usable-in-windows-whats-going-on-here/m-p/11528769?page=1

  18. Export from Specific Artboards in an Illustrator File

    I'd like to be able to choose which Artboard from a batch of files that I want to export to an Export Template.

    So I have around 50 files made in illustrator where they all have 4 Artboards in them. I want to quickly export a jpeg from ONLY the 4th artboard in all of the files.

  19. 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?
