  1. Error writing Metadata to files on network drives

    In Bridge, When trying to write metadata to files on my network drives I get "There was an error writing metadata to (file name)”. I have no problem writing metadata to files on my internal hard drive or any hard drive that is directly attached to my computer. I have found 1 other person that is having the same issue. Thank you for checking into this.

  2. XMP in MOV not working randomly and without a identified cause

    Bridge is unable to set/change XMP metadata in a list of MOV files that have the same source: some are writable, some others no, and the errors are very non-speaking. There is no way to know what can be done, or IF something could be done, changed, done better. What EXACTLY, and tecnhically (suppose you are speaking with Phil Harvey of exif-tool) does Bridge need to write and change XMP MOV metadata?

  5. Bridge 2020 displays incorrect metadata

    Bridge shows incorrect metadata for images exported from InDesign.

    In the attached screenshot, metadata for dimensions (in inches) and resolution shown in Bridge is wrong. When opened in Photoshop, they open at the correct size and resolution (350dpi).

  6. Modified GPS data in Bridge does not save to .jpg file

    Bridge Version 10.0.1.126
    Windows 10 Pro

    How to reproduce:
    Modify GPS position in the Metadata in Bridge. Click another field. Confirm Apply. Check the photo in Faststone Image Viewer by hovering the mouse at the right and then clicking on the Go to Google Maps button to see if it took. The attached lighthouse is on the east side of the island but the coordinates that come up in Faststone Image Viewer are still the original wrong coordinates. Correct coordinates are 46,8.4322N 62,30.0139W.

    Expected result: the applied coordinates would update the JPG file.
    Actual results: Bridge remembers the new coordinates…

  8. Time format ver. Ver 9.0.3.279x64

    When editing "ursprungligt datum och tid" (original date and time) the time format is not in correspondance with the regional settings in the control panel. in ver. 9.0.3.279x64 installed on computer OP. In the enclosed file you can compare with Ver 8.0.0.262x64 installed on computer FUJ935 where the field can be edited directly in the correct date format. It seemes like the improvement on this field to make it possible to make other adjustments has caused a bug

  9. Cannot cursor up or down in Metadata Description panel

    This behavior has changed - in the description panel, I can only use right/left arrows to move the cursor, where I used to be able to move cursor up or down as well.

  10. Adding Keywords to Illustrator files corrupts them

    When adding keywords to Illustrator (eps) files, it is no longer possible to open them in Illustrator. The error message is: "Can't open the illustration. The illustration contains an illegal operand. Offending operator: {epsmetadatastream}. Context: ƒøÔ."
    The files that weren't updated with keywords all still open normally.

    There is a work-around to place the corrupted files into an empty Illustrator document, but that is not ideal when dealing with many files.

  11. Can't type in new Capture Time

    When I want to change a Capture Time, I can select and place my pointer to type in a new date/time, but that does not work. I must instead scroll through the calendar to find and select the date I want. That is very slow. I think it must be a bug that the date/time field appears to be editable, but is not.
    I scan photos and so do lots or date changing. Too slow the way it it now.

  12. Template Error

    We apply Bridge templates ( replace Metadata) to assets delivered by Freelance photographers. The photographers have already added there own Creator metadata. Our Template usually leaves the IPTC Creator fields untouched, by having those fields unchecked in the template. (screenshot 1)
    However we now need to replace the "Creator Email" in the Metadata to reflect our contact as the Publisher. To do this I checked the Creator Email field in the Template and entered our email , other Creator fields remain unchecked (screenshot 2).
    However in Bridge 2018/2019 applying this adjusted template results in all the Creator Metadata being replaced,…

  14. @ bridge

    In Bridge 2019, no metadata field you can write the @ symbol using the keyboard. Using ASCII code yes. The same happens with the € symbol.

    Windows 10 Pro 1803 version 17134.345

  15. Metadata Sidebar

    The descriptor column in the new version of Bridge is too wide, causing the data column to be too narrow to be usable on the smaller screen of a laptop. Can you make those columns resize-able, or adjust them in a future update?
