  1. Can't use the "cut and paste" function, only "copy and paste" in Bridge CC 2019

    I just installed Bridge CC 2019 yesterday on MacOS Sierra. On local and Network drive files, the option to perform an EDIT -> Cut the file is greyed out. Command + X doesn't work either. I can only Copy and Paste. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn't work. I tried running Bridge 2018 separarely on my MacOS system, and the file cut function works as is it's supposed to. It also works on my Bridge CC 2019 on Windows 10 system as it should, so this is really limited to my install of Bridge 2019 on my iMac.

    Anyone else…

  3. The operation could not be completed

    I installed the latest version of Bridge CC 2018 after I reformatted my computer to install Mojave fresh and I've been getting constant "The operation could not be completed" errors. As a test, I thought the maybe the new CC 2019 version would run better on Mojave, but I'm getting the same error constantly to where I have to leave it closed most of the time to get any work done because my computer keeps beeping and jumping the dock icon every time the error pops up.

  4. Screenshots not showing on clipboard in Bridge

    Screenshots using Alt+PrtScn, Ctrl+PrtScn, WindowsButton+Shift+S, combinations like that don't seem to show up on the clipboard in Bridge. If i copy a photo from another program, then I can go to Bridge, click on a folder then click on paste and it will create a file for it. It doesn't seem to show up from a screenshot. It would be handy to be able to do that with a screenshot.

  5. 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.

  7. Adobe Bridge CC 2019 sidebar folder view shows hidden files in macOS root directory

    In Adobe Bridge CC 2019 sidebar view (left sidebar with folders), some hidden system directories are visible in macOS High Sierra 10.13.x and Mojave 10.14.x.

    These folders are for example:


    • "private",

    • "Network",

    • "usr",

    • "sbin",

    • "cores",

    • "bin".

    All folders are located in the macOS root directory. Normally these folders are not visible and should be hidden. Hide and Unhide files/folders within macOS preferences is has no effects in Adobe Bridge CC (at least not in the macos root directory).

    Turning on/off the "show hidden files" in Adobe Bridge CC preference option has also no effect in the macOS root directory but…

  9. Bridge 11.0.083 fails to open multiple files at a time into Photoshop 2021

    While this normally happens with multiple files, sometimes Bridge simply fails to load photoshop altogether with a single file (via double-click, or open on right-button click menu).

    I need to go into photoshop to open the file manually.

    Something is definitely broken, this worked fine before.

  11. File name corruption

    I have a number of files with a "?" as a placeholder until I determine the genus and species of my photo's subject. The latin name is enclosed in parenthesis, so the filename temporarily includes the character string "(?)". When I drag files from Bridge's window to another folder inside Bridge or select "Move to" from the pop-up after right-clicking on the file's thumbnail, the filenames at the destination are truncated at the left parentheses. "Filename (?).psd" becomes "Filename (" with no extension. If there are files with the same name but different extensions, such as "Filename (?).jpg", Bridge wants…

  13. Sub Folders no longer visible as a drop downs under master file

    Just made the jump to Catalina.
    I use Bridge a LOT to sort images. One feature appears buggy.
    Sub folders used to be indicated with a little ">" on the left side of the master folder. Which was awesome b/c I could click on the ">" and the sub folder(s) would drop DIRECTLY below the master folder.
    In the attached images, the folders directly below "399 Episodic" ALL have subfolders in them, yet no ">" is next to the master folder. Interestingly, that is also the case with the "400 Episodic" master folder. ALL the sub folders have sub folders…

  14. Smart Collections are not displaying all images in the folder

    Adobe Bridge CC 2020 Smart Collections are only displaying a small subset of the photos that should be included. I use several layers of subfolders and it is seeing into the first few, but ignoring the later ones. This feature has always been a little quirky, but I don't know of a way to force Bridge to look again. Recreating the Smart Collection gives the same result.

  15. No Copy and Paste of Filenames

    I don't understand why you can't copy and paste into filenames when saving or exporting files in Bridge. When generating lots of sequential documents with different images, it's really frustrating to have to write out the filename every time.

  16. No "Copying files" dialog box when pasting a Folder within Bridge

    Not sure if File System Operations is where this belongs, but I've found on Bridge 10.1.0.163, when I copy a Folder in Bridge and paste it elsewhere, I am not presented with a "Copying files..." dialog with which I could Cancel the operation. Copying individual files or a selection of files that also includes a folder does offer the dialog and thus the ability to cancel the copy/paste.

  18. Modification date changes when changing rating or label

    When I change a rating or add a label, the modification date changes... I mean, really... What?..

    I started noticing in Indesign it would say all kinds of linked images (that I label after import) where modified.

    Dates should obliviously not change when rating or labeling a file!!
    It completely messes up the workflow, and also removes date info for future reference which also stinks...

    In Irfanview for example it is possible to change file data without altering the date(s). There's also renaming tools that can keep the original dates. And backup software etc...

    Long story short please change ASAP...

  19. 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…
