  1. 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!.

  2. Spacing between folders

    There is too much space between folders in the updated 2019 version of Bridge, which is just wasted space. It needs to be more compact - it just creates the need to scroll more as less is visible.

    NOT A BUG  ·  Abhishek Seth responded

    Dear User,

    We have made this change for better readability.

    In case you wish to get this changed, please post it as a feature request.

  3. Resizing of thumbnail bar does not work very well

    The thumbnail bar eats up unneccessary space and does not resize well.
    When switching between different views the thumbnails are scaled to the minimum size and not to what was set before. Only resizing the bar restores the previous setting.
    The bar also reserves space for the additional info lines - even if none of them are enabled.
    On a Full HD screen this clutters up the interface.

  4. 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…

  5. Photo downloader will not recognize CFExpress card on MacBook Pro

    Photo Downloader recognizes CFExpress card on my Windows 10 machine, but it does not recognize on my MacBook Pro - which is where I need it the most. I use the MacBook in the field and I must manually transfer files.

  7. 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.

  9. scrolling in bridge is still broken.

    Latest update did not fix the scrolling bug again. Scrolling is still infuriatingly jumpy.

    PLEASE find someone, ANYONE, a temp, a student, a janitor, someone to look into this. the NEEDS to be fixed.

    Attached for reference, shows you the SMALLEST scrolling 'tick' you can move.

    This is 320px!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Bridge erases all keywords, label and stars

    After working on keywording some images extensively, I find suddenly that there are no keywords in the metadata, and the label and stars have been erased. I am using the latest version of Bridge 9.0.1.216 x64, running on Windows 10. This has happened numerous times today and is very frustrating and a huge timewaster. Please fix this ASAP!

  11. Preview is still not working for AE presets

    It's been a while since this bug was discovered - and unfortunately, it's still not fixed. When previewing After Effects presets, the preview animation is basically just a freeze frame. None of the suggested workarounds are working - apart from reinstalling an older version of Bridge.

    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.

  15. 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

  16. Camera Raw opened from both Bridge 2020 and 2021 opens but freezes completely

    My camera is compatible with the system. I tried everything, but the cursor will not even work. This is utterly ridiculous. I have to have Camera Raw to be able to work. I am at a loss.

  20. Adobe Bridge not showing .CR2 thumbnails.

    It was just updated to 10.1.0.163. I DID downgrade Camera Raw plugin to the old version. Would this have something to do with it?
