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 having this issue or facing this problem?
This is as designed for Bridge CC 2019.
Please post it as a feature request
You can enable on Mac the feature to move files. BUT FOR GODS SAKE DO NOT DISABLE the CUT function. This is ridiculous!!!!!!!!
There are thousands of users complaining, but YOU DO NOT WANT TO HEAR!!!
Your customer service is beyond worse, really! You can enable the move function for users who want this. But not for the price of disabling a feature used daily by thousands of users.
Keep both and everyone happy!
The problem is that you are to proud to accept that you just did S...!
I have just experienced losing an entire folder and a week of work as a result of attempting to copy and paste the file in Adobe Bridge
Copy and Paste is as fundamental to the basic UX of any computer user as having a keyboard to type on - or a screen to view the data. To mess with this is crazy. It's cost me a lot of money - can anyone tell me why the file has vanished?
'Cut' no longer works at all .. I've just had to accept that. CUT ... I mean. - what are you doing Adobe?
why is this "as designed for Bridge CC 2019"??? Please tell me just one reason why this makes sense?
Search on google and you will find 1000 of users who are unhappy that adobe just deactivates such an essential function, as "cut" and "Paste" is!!!!! Every system has it, but now you just deactivate it. Do you ever work with bridge???? I mean, this function is a MUST!!

This is very strange. While I don't begin to claim I know much about IT, it might have a little to server side commands or there might be a Bug in the Cut Command right now and their programmers have done us a favour by turning it off until they fix it.
Either way, they should have "hidden" the cut command from the edit menu if that was it is the latter.
What would be nice though is an explanation.
What is different about MOVE To versus Cut and Paste?
How is this "better"
I'm sure some of us can report how it's worse, but at least 1 person feels that this is a feature, so maybe there is something we are missing.
It is not understandible, that this change should be a feature not a bug! For those who often use shortkeys is the missing Command-X terrible! And it slow down its work!

Please vote there to!
Hmm that seems OK but it would be good if the menus reflected these changes so people can learn the new shortcuts
I will repost as a feature request but I doubt it will be changed back. It seems that Adobe Bridge Mac Team has decided to change the way cut and paste traditionally worked in Bridge and now it must be done with the move command or keyboard shortcut COMMAND+C and then COMMAND+OPTION+V.
Every Bridge user was already used to using COMMAND+X, COMMAND+V, but unfortunately they decided to go with Apple's clipboard functionality over what was already working very nicely in my opinion.
Please remove the resolved tag from this post, the issue remains.

I am still having the same issue.
I wonder if you bridge has move function, than why the cut functions is grayed out in edit menu? it's a bug, hope adobe resolve this soon.
I'm missing cut an paste function inside Bridge on macOS 10.13.6 to. I used this function very often. It is quit usefull during organizing files. Please bring it back!
I am experiencing the same issue.
Shouldn't the original poster determine whether this is resolved or not?
The issue is still not resolved. The cut and paste operation does not perform as it does in previous versions of bridge on Windows or macOS. Command+X, followed by Command+V is an established way to perform cut and paste file operations across both platforms. Why would the product team working on Bridge break this for the macOS version of Bridge is beyond my understanding.
I will downgrade to Bridge 2018 until is it fixed.
@abhishek Seth: Thanks, but what about within Bridge? I want to cut and paste a file within bridge, not in Finder. I rarely use Finder for organizing files, it's nice to have the function now to move the files between the finder and bridge, but this is not what my issue is about. I want to move a file from one folder to another by cut and paste "within" bridge as I always have been able to.
Thank you and let me know if there's a solution to this.
On Mac, we have provided the ability to Copy and move files from Bridge to finder\Bridge
