  1. Bridge 2023 - metadata placard reappears

    When I turn off the Metadata Placard, it reappears when I reopen Bridge. I'd like it to stay hidden.

  2. Metadata panel does not update

    After performing numerous Metadata keywords and description edits across 100+ files in the Content Window, selecting an individual Thumbnail no longer updates the Metadata panel. In order to refresh the Metadata panel, you must click into the dialog window of each metadata element.

  3. Bridge CEPHtmlEngine hangs up c/o custom metadata panel extension

    I’ve installed the custom metadata panel extension for Bridge and when I press the Settings button in that panel I'm given two choices one of which is the “Open View Editor” and below it I select default and then a new window opens with a spinning circle and just gets stuck permanently. I later got a system message that this process is stuck…

    High CPU usage due to CEPHtmlEngine

    On another thread (below) someone seem to have a similar experience and someone came to their assistance asking for logs. I followed the steps and have logs to share if that…

  4. Bridge October 2022(13.0) Metadata panel (Expand All) not being remembered.

    After choosing all of the metadata options I want shown by default in "Preferences" and selecting "Expand All" to see these choices for each image at all times these settings are not being saved when Bridge is shutdown. I have to go back and click "Expand All" each time I fresh start Bridge. This used to work fine in 12.x. I use specific metadata all the time and would like it to be shown by default each time I run Bridge and select a file. I created my own custom template thinking that would work but this does not fix…

  6. v13.0.1.583 1. defaults to template folder. Will not keep my template.

    Defaults to template folder. Will not keep my custom metadata panel. I have to click on the drop down, select my metadata, then select 'keep original metadata but append...' then select OK - for EVERY image. If I go back to this later, it has defaulted to the template folder again. How can I make it default to my metadata?

  7. metadata is not taken from cr2 file

    I add metadata via Bridge (e.g. description/keywords) to a CR2 file, resync the folder into Lightroom, so that metadata should also be inserted into Lightroom. Now when I write new files from Lightroom, the metadata is not sent along.

    I would also use the Bridge Photoshop image processor, but it doesn't offer the option to resize the image by specifying, for example, only the long side.

  8. Métadonnées

    Plus de raccourcis 'CTRL enter" pour valider. Les mots clés et les métadonnées restent dans la zone de saisie, qui ne se rafraichit pas. Gros problème pour savoir ce qui est renseigné.

  9. Metadata fields fail.

    -name of the field not showing (it's description, keywords and title on the sample image).

    -the size of the space for the names is oversized and it is fixed, can not be reduced.

    -copy-paste in these fields has some issues, it randomly puts previously copied text to a new loaded image

  10. Metadata File Properties: Application field Displays out of date information

    The <Application> field in <File Properties> displays out of date information. If I update a file using PhotoShop Elements 2021 (PSE), the <File Info> field in PSE correctly shows that PSE updated the data. However the equivalent field in Bridge 2022 shows the previous application (ie, my camera). Both ACDSee and IrfanView correctly show that PSE updated the file. I use this field to recall what files have been updated and is therefore important. I may well continue with ACDSee instead.

  12. Unable to apply edits to metadata sometimes

    Intermittent, unpredictable inability to add or apply edits to metadata fields such as IPTC Core using Adobe Bridge 12.0.2 and preceding 12.0.1.246 release. This is particularly unacceptable when editing metadata of multiple selected images. Worse yet, there is no error message generated! You must check file by file, metadata field by field, to see if the edit was applied. This seems to persist in certain image files but not others.

    When only one file has metadata added or edited metadata, clicking the lower right corner “Apply” icon results in either:
    1. the added or edited metadata disappear from the field…

  13. Metadata fails to populate (IPTC Core)

    This isn't an "idea," it is something that is broke. I've spend several hours on two different days with chat support, and no one can figure out what is wrong. I have multiple images that I apply metadata templates - actually thousands of images in a wildlife photography application. I've been doing so for many years now. This recently quit working on all images that have been processed (RAW images). If there is an XMP file containing processing instructions, when I apply the information from a metadata template, or enter the information manually, when I leave the images nothing has…

  14. Text size changes when editing Description

    When I edit text in the metadata panel (set to the biggest setting in preferences), the font is replaced by a slightly smaller one, making me hunt for the correct location to place the cursor. Bridge 12.0.0.234
    Windows 10, I have a 5120x1440 screen while my laptop 4K monitor is closed.
    Behaviour is similar if the User interface scaling is at 100% or Auto.

  15. Hi, I would like to be able to view the length of a video time from within the metadata or anywhere it can be displayed.

    Hi, I would like to be able to view the length of a video time duration from within the metadata or anywhere it can be displayed.

    This can be done in Windows 'File Explorer', DigiKam' and other apps. It would be ideal to view it in Bridge.

  17. Unable to edit/save metdata template when custom metadata view.xml present

    Adobe Bridge CC 2021 11.0.0.83
    macOS 11.01 (also macOS 10.14 and 10.15)

    Reporting this as I cannot find any documentation that indicates this should not work.

    If I add a custom Metadata Extension view.xml that contains any of the following three Dublin Core properties I am unable to edit and save a metadata template.

    name="dc:title"
    name="dc:description"
    name="dc:creator"

    if data is already present in any of these when editing the template from the Tools menu an error dialog pops up reporting "The operation could not be completed" for the following actions:

  18. Date of Change not correct

    The date of Change in the Metadata panel of Bridge 2021 (Mac OS 10.14.6) is not correct (yesterday, but it was 2 years ago...). The file info shows the correct date (see screenshot). I worked with this folder at this timestamp, but not with all files. So maybe this is the date, where the cache file was created (?).
