Photo downloader doesn't store preferences anymore
Adobe Bridge Photo downloader used to store my preferences when importing photos, now it just goes back to the original box for import. It used to stores that I wanted the Advanced Dialog by preference, and the folder to store the photos, and the renaming of the files, but now it doesn't...
The issue has been fixed in the latest Bridge release 12.0

Ok, after throwing a couple more hours at this problem here's the answer for Mac users:
1. In finder, use the key command to show hidden folders "CMD+Shift+."
2. Navigate to: Macintosh HD/User/xxxx/Library/Application Support/Adobe/
3. Create a folder named: Bridge CC 2019
4. Cheer that your application works as it once did in 2019
*Note that it is the "Library" folder that is hidden and the reason why CMD+Shift+. is needed and likely the reason why people are having problems implimenting this fix, as I know I was.
Well, that should do us until Bridge 2022 comes out...
YO! ADOBE! Fix yo junk!

Das ist schon das zweite Mal, dass nach einem Update der Bridge der Foto-Downloader die Einstellungen nicht behält und man immer wieder alles neu eingeben muss. Das zeugt von einer permanenten Nutzerunfreundlichkeit seitens Adobe!!!
It doesn't keep any of my preferences including my name and copyright. And every now and then the actual bridge preferences go back to default so the Photo Downloader doesn't even automatically start when I've inserted my camera's card. I am using the latest version of Bridge, (vs. 188.8.131.52) I tried going back and using the 2020 version but it didn't help.
