  1. New Adobe Bridge 2019 freezes

    Working in the new Adobe Bridge 2019 today. After working a while, the screen freezes - I can move cursor, etc. however cannot open a file, make a selection, quite Bridge, etc. Only option is to Force Quite Bridge on Mac (current OS) and open again. Open the apps, make a selection and then freezes again. Done this multiple times with same affect. Can no longer continue my work. Was working OK when first installed, however no longer.

  4. Bridge freeze and crash on Batch Rename

    Version 9.0.3.279, Win 10
    Batch rename causes freeze.
    Forced quit required.
    Repeatable - happens EVERY time.
    Uninstall/reinstall does not resolve.

    Other bugs in current version
    - cannot select first image in a stack when stack is collapsed.
    - not all subfolders visible (view set to show folders/hidden/reject files) some folders are visible, sometimes. Not dependent on number of images/folders (ie. not excessive quantity of files) All become visible when "show items from subfolders" checked, though obviously also showing everything in folders also!.

    NOT A BUG  ·  Abhishek Seth responded

    This is a feature that helps you auto detect a corrupt GPU and turns on software rendering for quality preview and thumbnail.
    If you correct issues with GPU, this setting will automatically turn off.

  6. High CPU usage

    Having generated previews and doing nothing, the CPU load is 80-100% !!!
    When running the previous version, the CPU load is only 1%
    At the moment, viewing and tagging photos is almost impossible with such high CPU usage

  9. Bridge crashes while starting viewing a collection

    I can not open Bridge anymore. Whenever Bridge starts while a collection is being displayed, it will freeze and crash right away. Since I closed Bridge last time after working on a collection it will automatically start viewing thiscollection. That is a problem. It is now impossible to start Bridge anymore since it will freeze and crash immediately.

    The collection contains about 400 pictures. No way to start the app anymore without a work around (right click on a picture in explorer "open in Bridge").

    Please fix asap.

  12. Can't Copy&Paste or Move Adobe Bridge 2020 picture files from one Folder to a different folder in Windows 10

    There can be NOTHING more frustrating than this - - - - - impossible to move one picture file from A to B even before and after manipulation in Adobe Bridge and Photoshop and IMPOSSIBLE to rename the original Canon picture filename with a simple ABC123 etc.

    THIS CANNOT BE BEYOND THE WIT OF GENIUSES

  13. Can not delete files!

    I just reviewed a photo shoot of 1000+ and wanted to delete about 500 of them. Bridge freezes everytime I try to delete them all at once.

    Tried it several times now, does not work. This has never happened to me before the 2019 version came out!

  16. Crash from Bridge to Camera Raw

    Bridge crashes when I open files from Bridge to Camera Raw (command+R).
    It's really annoying. And everything is slower than before.

  17. Bridge freezes - especially in Full Screen Preview

    For the past month or so, when working in bridge, either viewing thumbnails, in full screen preview, moving files, etc, it freezes. I cannot make anything in the software work, sometimes for over a minute and sometimes I have to use task manager to close. I have version 11.0.0.83 on a pc.

  18. HEVC Video Crashes Adobe Bridge 2021

    Video files create on iPhone - HEVC format - cause Bridge 2021 to hang when that file is selected, or among a group of files selected. dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe may be part of the culprit in that trying to move a HEVC file after Bridge 2021 hangs results in a 'file busy' response from Windows. Killing the dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe process frees up the file(s). Bridge 2020 does not have this issue. This happens on multiple machines and I suspect should be easy to repeat.

  19. Bridge Crashing or Becomes Unresponsive

    I posted a while back when the new 2018/2019 Bridge came out in November. It was full of bugs for us from slow loading to crashing, etc. Now although the load seems to have picked up speed, I'm getting random crashes. We avoid Lightroom as it doesn't fit our Journalistic workflow, but Bridge isn't helping matters when we are trying to sort, tag and rename and it locks up.
