  1. 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. Scaled to Fit/Fill

    The 'Slideshow options > Scaled to Fill / Scaled to Fit' function does not work. This is reported more often in the foru and has not been working for the last few years.
    E.g. described https://community.adobe.com/t5/bridge/to-this-day-quot-scaled-to-fit-fill-quot-in-bridge-slideshow-options-still-does-not-work/
    Quoted from forum:
    "When a folder of images are all of various pixel dimensions, and a user checks "Scaled to Fit" in Slideshow Options and then runs the Slideshow, one can reasonably assume that EVERY IMAGE SHOULD BE FIT TO THE CURRENT SCREEN, PROPORTIONALLY! The remainder of the image should be letterboxed.

    But that simply doesn't happen with Bridge. And it never has. On…

  4. Renaming same raw+jpeg files names files in sequence #1,2,3 ... not 1,1,2,2,3,3...

    When renaming Raw+Jpeg files, Bridge gives them sequential sequence numbers, not the same sequence number i.e. Filename001.raw Filename002.jpg NOT "Filename001.raw" and "Filename001.jpg"

    New Dell Laptop, latest version on all software, Win 10 Home. First tried yesterday, worked after several tries … now not working correctly at all

  6. Sony ARW files are saturated and dark

    Bridge and Lightroom creates very saturated and dark previews of Sony RAW files (ARW). Once this preview is there, I can't turn it off. This has made Adobe products unusable.The jpegs are light and desaturated. I even went as far as to wipe my hard drive clean and upgrade the OS and software (Adobe support says to do this when they run out of ideas). Any ideas on what is going wrong?

  8. Bridge not deleting files from my desktop DropBox folder. Error message appears. Impeding workflow.

    Bridge v 10.0.2.131 in Mac OS Catalina is not deleting files from my desktop DropBox folder. Error message appears. This is impeding workflow and was never an issue on previous versions.

  11. Can't open .ai 2020 file from Bridge 2020 in Mac OS 10.14.6

    I cannot double click to open, or right click to open an .ai 2020 file in Bridge 2020. I get either no response at all, or the error you see in the screenshot. I'm on Mac OS 10.14.6.

    I can drag an .ai file from Bridge onto the Illustartor application icon in the dock.
    I can reveal the file in Finder, and open it from there.

  12. Favorites sidebar deletes folders when drive is not attached

    I frequently access files on two external drives (a camera SD card and a SSD for photos). I keep a few folder shortcuts to both of them in the Favorites sidebar and occasionally forget to plug one in when starting work. If I click on a shortcut to a drive that's not plugged in, it gets deleted from favorites. Highly annoying as I have to drag it back into favorites once it's plugged in. Would be great to have the option to keep or delete the favorite instead of auto-deleting it when it can't be found.

  13. Bridge doesn't fully close when exiting...

    When I exit Bridge to close the program it actually stays running in task manager and I have to manually end the task to close it completely.

    Bridge also fails to open (unless I end the task) after I close it because of this bug.

  14. Batch rename hangs

    When there're some files which may be given same name after renaming, Bridge will takes serial number such as (2), (3), ...and more.
    But today's version, Bridge hangs and the files are left with temporal names.

  16. Bridge won't open files using Explorer's file type association

    After the 10.0.3.138 update, Bridge no longer opens files using Windows Explorer's file type associations. For example, if you try to open an mp4 file Bridge will not open it in Movies & TV. Instead it will open it in a third party app if you have one installed that handles that file type. Otherwise, if there isn't a file type associated with it, Bridge will simply not open the file. Changing the file type associations won't work because there are no options for any of the native Window apps. This was not the case in 10.0.2. For now the…

  17. Error in date order uploading from iPhone

    I am using Bridge 10.0.3.138 and use it to upload Photo's from my iPhone8. To be honest, neither Bridge Version or iPhone model are relevant, because Bridge has been doing this for several years and It does it with every iPhone model. When I connect my iPhone to my pc, and once iTunes has synced I use Bridge Photo Downloader to upload images. Once Bridge eventually finds my iPhone, (and it can take several attempts for Bridge to recognise the iPhone, sometimes saying this device contains no images which is wrong, but that's another thread) - it does not sort…

  20. The operation could not be completed. An unknown operating system error has occurred.

    Bridge 10.0.4 - Repeated error message on startup.

    I have read the posts that are relevant and reinstalled Bridge, rebooted the computer, checked Privacy settings, removed external drives. Bridge still gives continual error messages as soon as it is started.

    The problem went away for a couple of days and has now returned. On moving a photo from one folder to another it moved the entire folder and then showed four copies of the same folder in the directory tree. Back to the same error message now on restarting. Is this unique to me or are others having similar problems?
