  1. Server Does Not Seem to Store Thumbnail Cache

    Photos stored on server. Click folder, wait 10 minutes to see the photos. Go to another folder, wait another 10 minutes to see those photos. Multiply by the 30 or so folders I need to look through and now it has taken HOURS. Next day: Those image thumbnails need to be regenerated again. They were not stored in the cache. More HOURS. COULD YOU PLEASE MAKE IT MUCH MUCH FASTER TO VIEW PHOTOS THAT ARE STORED ON A SERVER.

  2. Bridge 10.0.0.124 Cache is not working at all

    I'm actually speechless. It is beyond my imagination how Adobe can release unusable version. To reproduce:
    - Generage cache for some folders and subfolders.
    - wait 2 hours
    - turn off laptop, disconnect external drive go to work
    - attach drive turn on laptop
    - run bridge - go to foder with pre generated cache
    - bridge starts generating thumbnails again

  3. Why does bridge not use the same catalog as lightroom

    Why does bridge not use the same catalog as lightroom? they are sister products and the potential for integration/working side-by-side, seems tremendous.

  4. cache update issue

    Bridge 2020: I save 2 copies of post-processed photos, 1 psd which preserves all the edits and, in a different folder, one jpg. Often, I re-edit a psd to adjust one of the effects, save it (over-writing the previous psd), and then save a new jpg (over-writing the previous jpg in the jpg folder). Almost 99% of the time, Bridge does not update the thumbnail and the preview of the jpg unless I purge the cache for the selected jpg.

    This problem occurs no matter how many photos (50-2500) are present in the psd or the jpg folders.

    System =…

  5. Bridge 2019 Cache building has many problems.

    Prior to Bridge 2019 it was possible to create multiple threads of the cache build on different folders. Now, in 2019, only one cache build thread can run. Also, pre-2019 Bridge allowed NOT exporting the cache. I have found in Bridge 2019 that if multiple clients export their cache to the same share point, then other client's cache is messed up and metadata doesn't appear for images. If there is a way to NOT export the cache, I haven't been able to find it. Please allow multiple, simultaneous cache builds from one client and also allow non-exported cache. Basically, just…

  6. Cache building has many problems.

    The ability to leave a specific folder, like your archive, untouched about the purge and compact cache to load faster.

  7. Bridge 2019 search fails to find all images with a given keyword.

    After several days building the cache, Bridge 2019 fails to display keywords and other metadata for many images and search only returns a tiny subset of the images that should be returned. At this point, we are forced to go back to Bridge 2018.

  8. In Bridge 2019, some xmp metadata that worked with all prior Bridge versions now cannot be read and imported.

    In Bridge 2019, some xmp metadata that worked with all prior Bridge versions now cannot be read and imported. In some of my image folders the metadata appears for images while in other folders it never appears. In the non-functional folder, if I tell Bridge 2019 to build and import the cache, it freezes and then crashes. At this point, Bridge 2019 is useless to me.

  9. Moving Files

    After updating to the 2019 version of Bridge, whenever I move video files to an external hard drive Bridge moves the file but leaves a copy of the video behind. As if it copied it, instead of moved. The thumbnail for the file left behind changes to an icon of VLC, as it's the app I have set to open video files. This gives me an extra step of manually deleting the file. The moved file on the external hard drive is fine, thumbnail and all. When I open Bridge 2018, everything works as expected.

  10. Excessive CPU Usage and crashes.

    Bridge CC2019 is full of bugs and virtually unusable. This is just one of them:

    https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2564501

    Others include crashing when using the spacebar to view full sized previews.

    Not being able to see progress/status when the content tab is set to vertical.

    I've had to go back to cc2018 which functions fine generating 200,000 CR2 files and doesn't hog the CPU.

    Did anybody test this POS before you released it for your customers to beta-test?

  11. Allow cache build without export

    Pre-Bridge 2019 allowed building of cache without exporting. Please add this option back into Bridge 2019.
