Bridge 2023 - Some files not showing in the content window after searching (using different search criteria)
When I search for files within a folder (either by "Document Type:exists" or "File size: is greater than 0", subfolders included ticked, etc.) files show up in the Content window, but I can't find one of the files. This happened to me for the second time within a couple of hours. And with different files. I check inside the searched folder and the file is present in a subfolder among other files, but it is not displayed with other files when the whole folder is searched for all files. I can open the file and save it as a copy with a suffix, and it shows up then, but with the suffix. But the original file is still not searchable. What is also interesting, when I moved the file folder up to a different location - it showed up in the search. And when I dragged it back to its original folder - it shows now too. So Bridge somehow lost the path to the file and regained it after the file has been moved.
This is a critical malfunction of the "Search" utility, because it means I can never be sure now I am looking at all files after searching and selecting them all in the Content window. It means I can unintentionally omit some files while batch processing, leaving some of the files unedited, not even being aware of it. It can lead to incomplete batches sent back to clients and unprofessional results.
Bridge has been always having issues with the Search utility and I've been using workarounds to make sure I'm seeing full list of files searched for, but this is the worst I have experienced with this function, I can't see a workaround for this failure and it makes the Search function and generally Bridge unreliable for batch editing.
Please fix ASAP!
