my company uses bridge and we sync our projects across onedrive. we have avoided stacking because it's not shared across all users, so we have used folders. We use linking (place linked) in photoshop and put our source images in a folder called "links" under the project folder. However, when duplicating templates to reference the file names, it doesn't work since, from what i can tell, it wants to find that specific location rather than treating the project directory as root (which, i believe would make linking better with photoshop and solve a lot of issues we have with linking). the solution that works with this issue is to have the source files in the same directory. using stacks acts as a virtual folder to keep things organized and when duplicating templates it's able to find the links and update them. however, there should be a settings file or something that would be synced that will tell bridge on other machines what should be stacked. this way, it's uniform across all users.
hope this makes sense
