  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Darker / thicker typeface

    Do not see a category for interface, all panels and windows. I prefer white / light interfaces rather than the dark gray. The new Bridge has settings for type size (thank you!) but on the lightest background the type is medium gray or too thin and very hard to see. Would like a way to make type black on the white or light gray backgrounds, or more bold. Have to go back to 2017. Thank you.

  5. Cannot see progress of thumbnails

    Right now I cannot see the progress for thumbnail generation, in a folder of 2300 photos, it is but a guessing game when it will be done and performance will return to the app.

  6. Show brushes and patterns as pictures

    warum kann ich meine Presets nicht als Bild/Grafik in Bridge sehen und verwalten? Das wäre doch naheliegend und sinnvoll!
    Danke

  7. View InDesign thumbnails as spreads

    Many, many iterations ago, Bridge used to give you thumbnail of the whole opening spread for an InDesign document - which was brilliant for getting a rough overview of your mag. Somewhere around the time alternate layouts was added to InD though we got switched to just the opening page which isn't nearly as helpful. Can we have the (very) old system back?

  8. Smarter and more customisable thumbnail details, for a smoother workflow

    The layout and format of the details that appear under the thumbnails could do with some improvement, to reduce interface friction and increase workflow.

    Please see the attached screenshot (also at http://bit.ly/2Hrh00Z ). On the left is the current layout. It's dense and unnecessarily hard for the eye to parse quickly. On the rightis a mockup of how that same data could be laid out and formatted.

    Below is a list of my proposed changes. Many of these could/should be optional (set in the preferences) so each user can adjust her UI as she needs. And of course there would…

  9. Browse and preview pictures on removable media

    It looks like browsing and previewing pictures on removable media is not supported in any meaningful way.

    I am able to see folder structure and file names. I cannot see thumbnails or metadata. In the context menu for a file, the "Open" and "Reveal in Explorer" options simply don't do anything.

    I have tested this with an Android 9 device in MTP and PTP modes. I also tested with a plain old USB flash drive.

    No matter how slow it may be, I want Bridge to fetch thumbnails for all my photos and browse them before downloading or deleting any…

  11. Folders need Thumbnails

    Folders need Thumbnails! Its hard to browse folders without a thumbnail for what is actually in the folder! I can't believe you haven't added this feature yet. It's been years! The file explorer has this capability and Bridge should too.

    I want to see a thumbnail preview for a folder rather than a folder icon. That way I can get a sense what is in that folder without having to open it!
